1900s Velvet Evening Bag

Regular price $38.00 Sale

Gorgeous and unusual early 1900s velvet evening purse in a dark red velvet featuring a gold frame ornate clasp and matching velvet carry strap.

MEASUREMENTS:
frame width: 3.5 inches | length: 6.25 inches | strap length: 11.25 inches

CONDITION: Fair vintage condition. There are a number of flaws but this bag still presents well and is quite special as this style is not normally seen in a bright hue. There is wear on the outside velvet, particularly near the frame, and parts of it have been hand-sewn back to the frame. The frame itself is scuffed and has patina, as depicted in the photos. The inside lining is stained and possibly a later addition, but in good structural condition. There is a stone missing in the one part of the closure; see seventh photo. This bag is lovely for a vintage enthusiast looking for the perfect accessory or a period-accurate costume, but please be aware it is being sold in as-is condition.

COLOR: Dark red with gold frame and clear stones

MORE INFORMATION: No tags of any sort, which is not surprising given the era.

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.
