Another really lovely little structured evening bag that I am so fond of. This
one dates from the 1930s or 1940s and is a solid box shape with a top handle.
The outer is a smooth suede with an unusual raised chevon effect which is a bit
reminiscent of the Schiaparelli skeleton dress. It measures 4.5 inches (11cm)
wide, 3.25 inches (8cm) tall and 2.5 inches (6.5cm) deep. It will not fit your
phone. The handle adds another 6 inches (15cm) height.

It has a lift up lid. There is no clasp, it simply falls into place. Inside
the lid is a mirror. There frame which you don't really see unless the purse is
open, is brass. The lining is a moire taffeta. There is no label.

It is in very good condition. There is slight foxing on the mirror. The
interior is clean. The lid and hinge are solid. The handle is intact. There is
slight wear/smoothing on the corners of he base and around the lid but nothing
major at all. All in all, this is a really lovely and unique little purse.

Please zoom in on the photos.
