This lovely vintage rhinestone evening purse comes from the 1940's era of radiant  rhinestone covered evening bags that were hand made in West Germany.

Don't let the size of this little beauty be a draw back because when it comes to sparkle and quality, this rhinestone bag can hold it's own in both respcts.

This 1940's stylish rhinestone bag sports prong set shimmering stones, all present and accounted for and I don't see where there is any real significant aging, yellowing or darkening to these multi faceted glass gems, perhaps a few slightly aging, if you can even notice them. In most any lighting, this purse takes on a blinding personality. These photos were taken in natural light and do no justice to it's true beauty, as these pictures simply don't express all the twinkle and sparkle. This purse is structurally sound and in very fine, excellent vintage condition.  The body of this purse is in near pristine condition, showing no damages, wear, tear or other noticeable defects, no missing stones or negatives whatsoever. I love finding them in this very well preserved and cared for condition.


The purse is well attached to a simple silver toned plated frame with a kissing clasp. All structural elements function as they should. The frame shows just little wear to the plating, as you would expect for a 1940's vintage purse but nothing too naughty. The interior off white satiny lining has a pocket labeled made in Western Germany. The lining is in relatively clean condition with wee faint signs of age or usage, it looks like it wasn't carried more than a couple of times. This adorable and quality rhinestone purse measures, stuffed with tissue, approx. 5 inches in total height by 5 1/2 inches across the bottom and side gusset is about an inch in depth. The frame is nearly 4 3/4 inches wide and the snaky style chain handle drops the purse by 5 inches. No apologies with this purse. If you like these photos, you will adore this 1940's rhinestone covered evening bag, as it is glistening with charm and glitz. This is a wonderful little rhinestone handbag in very fine condition, bright, damage free and quite worthy of your attention, you'll love carrying it to any upcoming special event.
