Condition Report:

Very Good - There is a small hole and a couple of tiny runs in the lining 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 patterned lam√© (a fabric with golden thread running through it). It features a gilt metal frame and fastens with a 'kiss' clasp. The bag can be carried with a gilt metal open link chain. It has one large central compartment and a small ruched pocket. Attached to the interior of the bag is a small oval-shaped mirror. The bag is lined with a baby pink silk. 

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 floral maxi dress for a winter event?
