This beautiful antique gilt purse frame dates from around 1940 and is most probably Austrian . It has beautiful fillagree detail with four square crystal jewels and two long crystals .
The purse opens by gently pushing the centre jewelled clasp back and closes the same way . Despite its age it is in perfect working order one of the jewels is slightly scratched but not noticeable . The bag itself has been made in Antique woven silk which has been salvaged from an Antique shawl . The colours are Stunning with green pink navy all mixed together. These Antique shawls were an inspiration to the Missoni family who bought the looms . The sides of the bag are finished in vintage gold braid .
The interior of the bag is made in green silk and decorated with vintage ribbon and crochet flowers .
I have found a vintage Czech brooch to pick up the colours and that is pinned to the front .
