Fuchsia Roberta di Camerino Handbag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This Roberta di Camerino handbag is covered in a fuchsia silk with a raised pattern of trefoil designs in blue and green. There are decorative, gold-plated screw heads that attach the fabric cover to the metal frame. The clasp is very clever. The ring that hangs down is lifted and turned like a key to release the catch. The red leather interior has one zippered and two slip pockets. It also retains its original, matching coin purse. The mirror in one slip pocket is still wrapped in its tissue.

measures 12.5" high, to top of handle
