This is an absolutely fabulous vintage silk velvet handbag for evening or special occasions. It has a gorgeous diamante clasp and gold silk handles, with gold silk piping to corners and base. The shape of this handbag is so elegant and one which Waldybag has used for both evening bags and more rarely, exotic skin bags. This particular handbag has survived in excellent but not pristine condition. The diamante lift up clasp is gorgeous, still sparkly with all original stones still intact and it works perfectly. The original silk coin purse on a fine gold chain is still present and intact and the lining is clean with little signs of wear. The slip pocket is edged in gilt and the silk coin purse is lined in pristine oyster silk. The gilt frame is still shiny and unscratched with no tarnish. The Waldybag logo, one of the earliest designs, is embossed in gilt on the silk lining of the handbag but even without seeing the logo one would know that this is quintessentially from the Waldybag brand because of the style and quality of the handbag. The Achilles heel to this handbag is the handles, they are a deep black/gold silk which is still clean and free of stains but it is clear that in the past there have been repairs to the stitching along parts of the rolled silk handles, which are nevertheless firmly attached to the handbag. These areas of repaired stitching are visible in the photos. We don't think they detract from the  overall appearance of the handbag (it is vintage!)and although we are sure that the handles could be totally restitched if required we prefer to keep it as it is, it's nice to think it has been used, held and carried whilst acquiring these battle scars. Other than that there is a little wear here and there to the silk lining seen in the photos but not noticable in use.

This silk velvet Waldy would make a fabulous addition to a vintage or contemporary wardrobe, it is sheer glamour yet understated and it oozes class. It could be used for evening or for smart or formal day wear such as weddings etc, it would look super against a gold silk 'mother of the bride' ensemble, adding a touch of 'something old' and also something a bit different from the run of the mill 'occasion' bags. Notwithstanding the handles, it would make a perfect gift for her. They just don't make them like this any more

It is 11" x 6.5" x 2.5"
