Vintage tinsel evening bag - 1960s.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
This is a delightful (and unmistakably vintage) little soft, gold lurex evening bag, hand-made in the 1960s and lined in silky yellow fabric. It has a gold-coloured snake-chain handle, which may not be original.
In generally good condition, the one apparent fault is that this frame bar has lost its end; otherwise, so far as I can see, it is in perfect vintage condition - but I should add that the glitter is all you see at a cursory glance!
It's clearly a delicate little number - simply the fabric will ensure this! - and it's amazing that it's still around at all. Although not for everyday, it will certainly add extra sparkle to that party outfit!
It's a good size, and although I can't vouch for its strength, it will do well for a few cosmetics and a single key. Approximate measurements are: maximum width, 9 inches/22.5 cms; length, 7½ inches/19 cms.
