Condition Report:

Very Good - A couple of small holes in the lining material, where it has worn away from the frame of the bag. This does not affect the functionality of the piece and is consistent with age and use.

The Details...

This elegant bag is constructed from floral lam√© (a fabric with golden thread running through it). It features a gilt metal frame highlighted with a blue stripe of enamel on both sides and fastens with a 'kiss' clasp. The bag can be carried with a long and short link chain. It has one central compartment and is lined with a white cotton fabric. The bag measures 13cm x 13cm. The handle measure 32cm in length. 

A Short History...

Lam√© is a type of fabric that is woven with metallic fibres. In the case of this bag, the lam√© is woven with golden thread. It was highly popular during the Art Deco period for the making of dresses, shawls and bags. It reflects the light beautifully and met women's demands for attractive evening wear to accompany their new found freedom. 

Wear it With...

This bag is the perfect accessory for formal daywear - perhaps pair it with a black maxi for a winter event?
