This great purse came from the estate of a woman who had two famous daughters...one a well-known TV personality, the other an operatic singer in Europe. The mother was quite a glamourous type herself...and her wardrobe proved it!
It's by Pursuits, Ltd., done in a wonderful black silk velvet with a buckled strap on either side of the handle to allow a bit of length change. It's lined in black satin with a zipper compartment on the back wall. The large buckle accent covers the snap closure and is the final touch for a top crowned with rows and rows of glistening black bugle beads. (I'm pretty sure she bought the belt and this to go together, don't you think?)
It's approximately 9-1/2" wide and about 5-1/2" tall, 2" in depth. The velvet is a wonderful silk velvet to the touch...there are some lighter areas along the seams but I'm not sure whether this is from wear or the fact that you can feel the welt of the seam. The snap closure has a patent note on the inside...there is a magnet that is strong enough to pull the top closed whether you snap it or not! The handle is 16" across with an adjustment of 1/2" either way on each side.
All in all this is a great understatedly elegant evening purse...just the right amount of sumptuous fabric and glistening trim. It would add a fabulous look to any outfit...whether or not you add the belt or not!
