Very rare example of a Victorian Silk Velvet pouch bag with all the classic and desirable features PLUS outstanding condition! The fabulous beaded trapezoidal lid faces the front of the bag and latches with a metal ball fitting. The interior surface of the lid is fitted with a beautifully beveled full size mirror. Fully lined in spotless peach faille. The bag includes a matching faille coin purse which is attached to the bag’s frame with a gold twisted cord. While very slight nap wear can be seen on the corners of the lid, the 14" velvet handle and the rest of the bag show no visible defects. Don’t you love the snazzy silk tassel? The body of the bag measures 10 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 1".
