Jeweled Satin Evening Bag

Cream colored silk satin is woven with an Oriental motif of dragons and clouds in shades of blue, grey, gold, brown and red.  Of course the real attention getter is the large double sided red jeweled frame and clasp atop this vintage bag.

The jewels are set in brass wire with the smallest stones near the frame and the largest ones at the top.  The frame appears to be an older piece of Indian jewelry but the bag is not marked so I can't be certain.

The interior of the bag is lined with a darker shade of satin and there are two open pockets and a lipstick compartment.  These are all trimmed with gold kidskin.  The bag retains the original mirror with a matching satin covered back.

This striking and unusual vintage bag is in excellent condition.
