A cute little black faille evening bag from the '40s / '50s.

Although the evening bag looks large in the photos, it is not. It is a small purse perfect for an evening out with enough room for a license, money, lipstick, a mirror and a smaller cell phone. There is gold satin lining with some small light marks - a pen possibly? And on the other side inside, there is a store sticker probably with the price and there are still some remnants there that could probably be removed.

It measures across the bottom at nearly 9", at the top where the frame is 6" across and 7-5/8" high from top of frame to the bottom of the purse. A sewn-down pleat on both sides of the purse for interest.

There is an inside pocket on the interior for a license and/or bills. Very secure kiss clasp that shuts with a good snapping sound. The frame has aged with the gold frame turning darker plus some scratches, wear and other imperfections but no one will be looking that closely at the frame of the purse. The price has been lowered because of the imperfections.

Perfect and very feminine looking for an evening on the town!

Care Instructions

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.
