Delightful black silk evening bag from the 1920/30s. Beautifully embroidered in pink and blue flowers on the front. Along the top lovely coloured beads are sewn against a black beaded background. The beaded decoration continues on the gold-tone clasp with lifts to open into a lovely black silk interior with a gold-trimmed pocket.
For a small evening bag it is quite roomy with plenty of space for those essential accessories. With a chain handle it allows the wearer the opportunity to hold onto her escort’s arm while also walking through the room with a Margarita in her hand! What more could a girl want!
Approx size: H 6″; W 7″ (at its widest point)
Condition report: Slight sign of wear – most noticeably, two very small holes close together on the front but are not easy to see due to the folds in the fabric. In this area there is also a rub to the silk. The chain handle is in a darker tone than the gold-tone metal frame. The interior appears to be excellent.
