The detail work and quality satisfied a generation of women who reveled in the beauty of fashion and elegance. The micro beading is deep blue with scalloped designs covering the purse. It is stamped on the inside lining: Made in Belgium by hand Walborg. The exterior beading is in near perfect condition with no apparent bead loss or flaw. The lining is champagne colored satin. It shows normal vintage aging as the satin has lost its luster but not its fashion brilliance. The clasp even is topped with a sparkling clear rhinestone. The beaded handle has a 5 1/2″ hand drop. It is meant to be worn on your wrist or held by the handle. Very classy.
