This is an unusual gold leather evening bag in a faux snake design from DH Evans in pristine condition. It is a soft bodied, small handbag with a gilt clasp and frame, with two decorative bars with gilt end finials either side (one finial a lozenge shape not matching the three round ones, please see photos). There is no creasing or sign of use to the bag. There is a gold fabric trim along the top edge with matching gold fabric handles. Inside, the bag is lined in pristine gold coloured rough and most unusual hessian fabric and bears the label which confirms it is made of leather for DH Evans in italy. It is spotless and looks unused.
This is a super, unusual and edgy, small vintage evening/occasion bag which could also be worn to a formal day event. It is iconic 70's which would add a touch of glamour to an outfit while not being too traditional and also makes a change from the more usual clutch. Also perfect for a bridal handbag, something old...Perfect gift for her.
It is 8" x 7"
