Vintage Coblentz Original Gold Brocade fold over evening clutch from the 1950's


Ask a question

An elegant brocade Coblentz Original fold-over evening purse dating from the 1950s. The bag is made of silk, embellished with a repeating diamond brocade in gold and pale gold thread. The gilt metal kissing clasp is still firm, each side crowned with a diamanté embellishment. Quite a number of the tiny diamanté stones are lost but this flaw does not detract from the beauty of the bag. Completely clean and bright caramel satin interior, although there is a darkening to the satin along the edge of the closure which I suspect might be from the original glue. There is the tiniest bit of pulling at the base of the clasp.

Condition: The bag is in Fine vintage condition, except for the missing stones.

Measurements: 10.75" by 10.75" at longest and widest points.

Found in Connecticut by the Wandering Poetess.
