* FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - BEAUTIFUL SPARKLING VINTAGE RHINESTONE & GOLD EVENING BAG WITH A HUGE RHINESTONE CLASP - HAND MADE IN HONG KONG
A gorgeous all rhinestone evening bag hand made in Hong Kong from the early ’60s
The prong-set sparkling rhinestones are set on a background of twisted gold metallic threads which makes for a stunning combination - today's rhinestones do not compare to the sparkle and intensity of vintage rhinestones - the clasp is 2 huge rhinestones which are just gorgeous
There is a gold satin lining with a small pocket for a mirror or some money - there is some light soiling on the lining (mostly at the bottom of the lining which looks like it may have had a pen inside it) which is to be expected as the purse has been used but no one will see that except you.
Measures 6-½” at widest point across the bottom, 5” top to bottom & appx. ½“ wide across the frame area at the top - the entire chain is 31“ long but when carrying it the drop is about 12-½“
There are a few rhinestones missing - about 7 - on the lower corner of one side but that can be the side that is held against the body & no one would notice anyway with all the rhinestones on there - this is a vintage evening bag & it is not going to be perfect as though one just purchased it at a mall but that is what makes these vintage items so unique & one-of-a-kind - no one would notice the missing rhinestones unless they started to examine the purse & at night no one would ever notice it
Just a beautiful vintage all rhinestone evening purse which is just gorgeous at night with the brilliance of the sparkle
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.
