This is an absolutely divine little set.
Made in the 1930s, the evening bag with teeny matching coin purse are made from heavy weight peach coloured satin. The bag has been heavily embellished with glass beads featuring a crinoline lady with floral design behind. Both pieces fasten with poppers and the bag has a little ruched pocket on the inside.
A wonderful piece which will have taken a considerable time to create.
Length across base 7.5"
Height including handle 5.5"
Beautiful. These pieces are in beautiful condition and I doubt they have ever been used. The only minor points to note;
- there is a paste missing from both the purse and the bag - see photos
- there are a couple of very, very faint rust marks on the back of the bag which appear to have been caused in storage
