Sold; thank you! 

This pretty hanky bag feels as luscious as it looks, because there's padding between the soft layers of champagne colored fabric. So much special workmanship is evident here that I expect it was made as a gift -- perhaps featuring the recipient's favorite coral pink flowers on the beautifully painted flap.

The case has been tenderly cared for, too. Its interior is perfectly clean and, on close inspection, I can find only a few tiny spots on the back (that will probably rinse away). Most likely dating would be the 1930s, based on the Late Deco look of the bouquet. Provenance is a California estate.

Measuring about 8 inches square when closed, this will be a very spacious cache for your favorite vintage handkerchiefs -- and it's even nice enough to double as an evening bag, if you add a snap or hook for security.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!

Luscious color makes this one of the prettiest antique evening purses we've ever seen. Of peach silk, painstakingly hand-beaded with white and peachy-pink pearls, it measures about 7 inches by 4 1/2 inches. Probable dating would be early 1920s, since the bag's refined delicacy shows Edwardian influence, along with a hint of Art Deco. It's in superb condition, with no flaws except a few faint stains on the moire interior, hard to notice. There's a "Hand Made in Belgium" label inside.

This highly ornamental early plastic fan features lacy openwork and glitz in sophisticated black and white. Each edge, one black and one white, has molded ornamentation as well as rhinestones in gold-tone settings. The black edge is missing one gold flower, which is very hard to notice - as is the little bit of glue staining around a few rhinestones on the white side. I see no other flaws. This fan is really in great shape with original ribbons and little evidence of use. It measures about 12" wide when open and its length is 7", not counting the nicely incised silver-tone handle. For dating, I think 1940s (the last pre-air conditioning decade). Provenance is a Dallas area estate.
