Exquisite Victorian "Birthday Cake" Pink Pastel Silk Ribbon Roses Luxury Case Purse Bag, Antique Lace, Lavish Silk Ribbon Hand Embroidery

$275.00

Antique Style Victorian Edwardian Romantic Shabby Chic Silk Ribbonwork Embroidery and Antique Lace zippered deep round shaped purse/handbag/case ......another of my fabulous antique-inspired, totally romantic bags/purses. I don't create these often, as the intensive ribbon embroidery and detailed sewing is VERY time consuming, so grab it while you can! This ready-to-ship-immediately beauty, which reminds me of a luscious birthday cake, is lavished with antique laces and trims in different designs and types, as well as an extensive amount of gorgeous, delicate and intricate hand embroidered silk ribbon roses, buds and leaves in several colors of silk ribbon, plus accents of glass pearl beads on the top and sides of the case. It's a very well made, sturdy-sided bag with full double zippers, completely lined and beautifully finished. Perfect for keeping jewelry, fine sewing accessories or other very special treasures, or just keep it on a table as an exquisite decor piece!

PLEASE BE SURE to read ALL of the description especially the measurements and shipping times, BEFORE asking any questions---and do be absolutely positive this piece will match your requirements, as there are no refunds or returns. This piece is ready to ship immediately.

I love antique and vintage clothing and have collected it for years, as well as having a longtime design career including doing costume & restoration work for major movie studios and museums....Am now translating that love to my own contemporary creations and using all the fine extraordinary antique and vintage materials, laces, trims, beads etc that I've collected for more than 30 years in these wonderful wearable pieces....along with the finest of hand sewing and one of a kind details. Everything I create is individually hand made solely by me and has the very best of my carefully hoarded private stash of superb old accents (I use ONLY vintage materials that are in pristine, freshly-cleaned condition---no deteriorating, too-aged or rotting pieces EVER) plus the finest of modern silks, cottons and wools that I can find.....resulting in a fabulous truly authentic vintage look piece. Impeccable professional workmanship and design are the hallmarks here!

The body of this bag, which is a deep, round, double-zippered cylindrical style with a built in top handle, is of beautiful soft pale pink vintage moire, with a lining of vintage pink printed Daisy Kingdom cotton. The top surface features an absolutely fabulous wreath of handsewn silk ribbon roses in pinks, lavenders and blues, with green leaves---VERY intricate in design. In the middle is a cobweb-fine round of antique lace dotted with glass pearl beads and centered with an antique genuine mother of pearl carved button. Edging this is a garland of aqua silk anchored at intervals with aqua glass beads. The sides are hand sewn with antique laces in varying widths, embroidered ecru and pink lace, vintage narrow corded trim and rosettes of aqua silk ribbon; all accented here and there with more glass pearls. The pink double zippers each have hanging "charms" of vintage pink pearl hearts. The top handle features more antique lace over antique aqua silk and the front is finished off with a double bow of antique silk jacquard ribbon. The purse is fully lined and every inside seam has handsewn bias binding of a coordinating tiny pink and gold-starred print. This purse is very meticulously sewn inside and out and the embroidery is exquisitely done--strictly old-school craftsmanship!

Very, very adorable and a perfect size for treasures---measurements of this beauty are approx. 6.5" in diameter by 5.5" tall (9.5" to the top of the handle), a very nice and comfortable size and not too small to hold all the goodies. Fabulous gift for a special person and a wonderful evening or wedding bag too, or even just a gorgeous display piece!
