Strictly Personal Purse Black Satin and Gold Beads Shaped Like A Secret Diary



Very witty and a great size for an evening bag, these bags were retailed by high end department stores including Bergdorf Goodman in New York. The left side of the bag is the spine of the book, wrapped in gold metallic braid with red accents. The front of the black satin bag is marked, or titled "Strictly Personal" in gold beads. Open the book cover and you can find a charming poem inside, also worked in gold beads and underscored with gold braid. The top of the bag opens with a brass zipper. The interior has four slip pockets and the label. The back of the bag is black satin and all of the edges are finished with gold braid trim. The bag is in excellent condition. This is only the second time that I have ever owned this bag and I placed the first one in the hands of a prominent collector. Measurements; Height 8" Width 8" Depth up to 2"
