Jewelled framed velvet handbag, Italy, 1920s

About

A gently, elegantly curved frame is set with white spinels, citrines, emeralds and synthetic sapphires, in a frame of silver, with the reverse of the frame being engraved and hand worked, crowns a silk velvet bag. The bag is highlighted with small glass beads where it is attached to the frame. The large 'push down' clasp is set with a large synthetic sapphire.The bag itself is piped with dark brown velvet, and the interior is lined with a soft applegreen silk lining and trim. Rare and beautiful, made in Italy, varied designs were made in this format (precious and semi precious stones set in chased silver), though each one different and unique, some more lavish than others.
