This bag is exquisite.
Made in the 1920's or 1930s, the gold lame fabric has a beautiful print of dragons, butterflies and flowers in soft shades of blue, pink, green and brown.
The clasp is divine and has 64 teeny little glass stones with a larger faceted rectangular piece on the front, all set in gold-tone metal. There are even paste stones on the frame covering the hinge join - this piece is quality!
Fully lined with gold coloured satin there are a number of pockets on the inner, including one for your lipstick, and it comes with the original mirror and coin purse.
Very good with some minor points to note;
- there is wear to the four bottom corners as so often happens with these bags
- the fabric was originally a bit brighter gold, as can be seen by looking at the ends which are more hidden
- there are some marks on the inner, especially on the lipstick section - see photos
- light scuffs to the coin purse and lining
