Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
Stunning and rare antique 1900s brocade evening purse featuring lame details, a silver frame, interior mirror and ornamental tassel. The perfect accessory to complete your period-accurate look or to bring some vintage glamour to a modern outfit! Fully lined, clasp closure at top.
CONDITION: Good antique condition, particularly for its age. There are a few flaws to note, most obvious the wear on the fabric near the bottom ornament, as seen in the last two photos. The frame is fully functional but has some scuffs & patina throughout. There are some fabric discolorations, but only if you dig around in the folds, which are never visible. This bag presents quite well and is such a fun, wearable antique accessory. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Dark, deep green with gold, yellow and navy blue pattern
MORE INFORMATION: No maker or contents labels. Appears to be made of an unstamped frame -- likely silver coating over brass -- and brocade fabric. Steam lightly as needed.
PLEASE NOTE: Because sizing varies greatly based on year, brand and garment type, we recommend you compare the measurements noted above to an article of clothing you already own that fits you well. All garments are measured lying flat unless otherwise noted. Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit, so please pay careful attention to these measurements and ask questions before purchasing! Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear. Take a look at our store policies for more information.
