This is a totally stunning piece...a vintage evening purse framed in brushed silvertone metal and totally covered in sparkling rhinestones! This fabulous vintage piece came from the estate of a woman who loved beautiful things, had excellent taste, and collected avidly!
The label on the inside says it all: Made in West Germany, which probably dates it to the late 40's/early 50's. Germany and Austria were the superstars in producing beautiful rhinestones; this piece shows its beginnings well. It measures 3-3/4" top to bottom excluding clasp, 7-7/8" across the top and 8-3/4" across the bottom. The lining is done in white satin with a pocket on one side. There are a couple of marks in the lining...one a double linear red mark that might have come from a makeup piece(?) and a very faint grayish mark on the bottom. The lining is in excellent condition and is totally intact. The frame is done in silvertone metal with a beautiful brushed finish. It's in excellent shape save for a couple of tiny scuffs that you have to look for. The clasp has a rhinestone on each side at the top.
The outside is a kaleidescope of sparkle. The prong-set rhinestones are all in excellent shape with none missing and they wink and sparkle and catch every bit of light available!
This is a beautiful vintage piece, thankfully well-cared for over many years, and worthy of a starring role in someone's life who will let it shine for years to come!
