B493 - SOLD

This is an exquisite  antique French pillow purse /evening bag dating from the 1920's.

We found it in Paris and it must have once belonged to a very stylish  mademoiselle. It is in excellent condition and very useable.

The purse is in the shape of a pillow and is made from brass. Around the centre of the purse is a copper band to which is attached the hinge and clasp. The hinge and clasp are made from brass in a filigree design and are both in perfect working order.

The lid of the purse opens to reveal a sumptuous red plush interior. This shows some signs of use but is generally very clean.

The purse hangs on a brass chain.

The brass and copper of the purse has mellowed over the years to an antique hue which suits it perfectly. It would however polish to a shiny finish if required.

The purse measures 12.5 cm (5 inches) wide x 10 cm (4 inches) high x 6 cm (2.3 inches) deep. The apex of the chain when held is 40 cm (15.75 inches) above the top of the purse.

This is a fabulous antique French evening bag to use or treasure as part of a collection and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
