This curiously collectable ivory satin evening purse is beautifully embroidered in French Tambour style with dusty pink, rose and blue flowers and their foliage in various shades of green. The clasp and top of the bag frame are also artfully beaded in pink, ivory and green. The chain handle features delicate pearls, and the interior of the bag is also lined in satin, and the outer and inner seams are trimmed with gold satin piping.
This bag measures 6 inches long and 8.5 inches wide (see photos for measurements in cm). It probably dates from the 1920s, or possibly the early 1930s, comes in very good vintage condition, and would make an elegant wedding or prom accessory, as well as a beautiful gift.
