Silk velvet Moghul style clutch bag, 1920s,


A sumptuous, rich, dark blue clutch bag from the 1920s, in a distinctive Moghul style, made from Royal blue silk velvet, most likely French in origin. The frame is made from base metal/brass, set with sapphire 'poured glass' cabuchons and mother of pearl/nacre pieces, a very smart and sophisticated colour combination. The bag itself has been made recently, using Victorian silk velvet, with a 'gusset' and piping, giving depth to, and highlighting, the bag, so there is no wear to either the bag or its lining. It has a small velvet 'pull tab' that is pulled to open the clutch, once the mother of pearl and nacre clasp is lifted, simple to use and secure once closed. The frame is all original and in excellent condition. The lining is in a lighter, complimentary blue to the bag itself. Front and back views of the bag are both provided. A stunning addition to any wardrobe or collection.
