Measurements: TOTAL WIDTH: 3 1/2" - TOTAL LENGTH: 3 1/4" - LARGEST HANDBAG: 2 1/4" X 1 7/8" - SMALLEST HANDBAG: 7/8" X 5/8" - BAKELITE HANGER: 2 7/8" - WEIGHT: 2 oz.
Unsigned brooch made of gold tone base metal featuring 3 quilted Chanel style handbags (purses) hanging from a black bakelite bar.
A beautiful assemblage - each bag is suspended with a Chanel style chain.
Very good condition without damage or repairs and the stones appear to be original.
Purchased in 1970 from an estate which featured vintage clothing and handbags. Many of the estate handbags were signed Chanel so, perhaps, this pin was a give-a-way with purchase. Just a guess.
As always, photographed unpolished. However, the brooch will polish up beautifully.
