This is a wonderful vintage evening bag - stylish enough for big events and yet also big enough to be useful: about 9 inches wide, 6 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches deep. To keep your hands free for greeting, eating and dancing, there's a super-long 44-inch braided cord to wear on your shoulder or across your chest like a bandolier. Detailed on the front with shirred fabric that radiates in pleats from a row of sparkly diamond rhinestones, the bag has a dramatic "Dynasty" look and likely dates from the glitzy 1980s. It reached us from a collection in England but was made in Hong Kong by Debonair. The fabric isn't named on the label, but feels like silk (with something soft and cushiony between the layers). Condition is lovely, inside and out. The only flaws I can find, besides a little flattening of the pleats from storage, are a couple of small spots at the base; they're hard to notice, but a good dry cleaner or a dab of spot remover should zap them away, if they bother you.
