From the 1950 era, comes this fabulous unused, never out of the box, Walborg embroidered black satin clutch, a pristine hand held evening purse.

Although the country of origin is not mentioned, there is no doubt it was made in France for the designer Walborg, a company well known for quality and superior workmanship.

This distinguished and elegant black satin purse is made of ultra fine silky satin, beautiful weight to the fabric. This is a hand held clutch, therefore, no handle. Imagine the excitement to open the original Walborg box to discover a pristine purse, never carried nor does it appear to have ever been out of the box. The only thing I did was to replace all the old tissue paper with fresh. My photos are showing this purse perfectly on my screen, the shade of black is deep jet and the delicate hand embroidery, in the Point de Beauvais stitch, is the ideal touch. The purse is heavily gathered about the fully etched and embroidered frame. The addition of golden pierced accents and ruby jewels (not orange) give more reason to appreciate this fabulous evening bag.

Because the body of the purse has been pleated onto the frame, it shapes the purse like a large puffy, offering plenty of interior roominess.  The golden toned brassy metal frame has it's own charm and uniqueness. Every spec of the frame is embossed and/or etched with lovely designs. The entire purse is well attached to the frame at all points, this clutch is seriously perfect. I believe I am showing enough photos for you to judge this purse as a "must have" in your collection. How often do you get the opportunity to acquire such an eloquent and pristine wardrobe accessory? I am not showing a photo of the box because I am selling only the purse, the original box will be included but it does not and will not add to the value of the purse in my opinion. The box is in good condition for it's age.

I think my photos truly say it all and tell you exactly what to expect, no surprises at all, just delightful. Stuffed with tissue, as shown, this sweet creation measures 4 1/2 inches top to bottom, 7 inches across the frame, 8 inches at it's widest and puffs out about 5 inches from front to back.  This remarkable Walborg black satin embroidered evening bag has been unearthed in perfectly preserved condition, packed away for many, many decades. If excellence is your preference, consider adding this chic designer purse to your wardrobe accessories, it's just too darling and the condition is all you could hope to find in a vintage satin embroidered evening clutch.
