*VINTAGE DELILL HAND MADE HONG KONG EVENING BAG - BRONZE, TURQUOISE, PINK, AQUA & WHITE FLORAL & LEAF DESIGN - FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION
This lovely vintage Delill beaded evening bag is HAND MADE & beaded in Hong Kong in the early ‘60s. The entire purse is entirely heavily encrusted in thousands of tiny round beads forming flowers & leaves in shades of turquoise, pink, pale blue, gold & white. Both the back & front of the purse are entirely the same with the pretty leaf & floral pattern. Just spectacular in the amount of beading in this vintage evening bag!
The frame is gold tone & in good vintage condition with just a tiny bit of marring which one would have to look very close to see. The interior of the purse is a white silky fabric & has a tiny pocket. The lining has some soiling around the top inside. The body of the lining inside has a small bit of lipstick residue on the small pocket & a smudge near the top as most of these purses do since they have had a previous owner but no one will see it anyhow especially at night.
The gold chain is detachable if you wish by opening up the loops & slipping the chain off. It is a beautiful link style similar to what I believe is called a box link except rounded. The gold is bright & beautiful. The total length of the chain measures appx 30” with a drop of 7“ or 12-1/2” depending on whether you double the chain when carrying it. The clasp closes very securely with a very good snap.
The measurements are 8” at widest point across the bottom, 7” top to bottom & appx. 1“ wide across the bottom.
All the beading is intact. I may have missed a bead but I don’t think so. Just a spectacular vintage pastel all beaded evening bag for all of your special occasions
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
