Opulent Gold Embroidered Vintage Slide-Lid Bag

(& Gift Wrap if Desired)

Spectacular, roomy and in sensational condition, this gala evening purse of rich black velvet encrusted with golden embroidery and braided cording came from England but looks decidedly Spanish to me. For convenience of use, it's in a class all its own: Look at that amazing lid that simply slides up and down the cord handles to open and close! Novel handbag forms were characteristic of the 1950s, so that's my best guess on dating.

Despite being about 50 years old, this bag is in immaculate condition. Even the heavy moire silk interior shows no flaws. Size is an ample 7 inches by 7 inches and it's 1 1/2 inches thick at the top, 2 inches at the bottom. The handles are about 19 inches long. There are no labels, so it could very well have been custom-made.

Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
