Gallenga Stenciled Velvet Bag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Soft and sensuous melon colored silk velvet is stenciled in gold and silver by Maria Monica Gallenga. A contemporary of Fortuny, her work is often favorably compared to his stenciled velvets.

Exotic birds and vegetation decorate both sides of this drawstring pouch style bag. The bottom of the bag is adorned with a large Venetian glass bead and tassel.

The interior of the bag is lined with a melon colored silk fabric. The lining has frayed at the casing where the cord is drawn through. This is on the inside and does not detract from the appearance of the bag. The bag is in excellent condition.
