Amazing vintage 1970's handbag. All done in a classic black, accented with metallic gold. Ladylike style with a simple carry handle. Front is detailed with beads and gold leaves along with luxe, velvet cut-outs and a center, cross-stitch fabric. Inside is lined with vinyl and a gold tone, kiss-lock closure completes the look. A 'hand-decorated' original piece and one-of-a-kind vintage find.
