Printed Silk Handbag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This charming silk handbag appears to be unused. The front has a panel printed with what appears to be an Italian Renaissance port scene. This image is probably a reproduction of a famous painting, though I was unable to identify the original artwork. The rest of the bag is covered in black silk, and the lining is black faille. There is one zippered pocket inside that has a 1964 penny taped to a blank card (for good fortune). I assume this is the year it was produced.
