Royal blue satin evening purse vintage rhinestone embellished frame 

Hello and thank you for visiting. This purse was not only a challenge to create but just as difficult to photograph. It seemed to be more of a royal blue during the day but then more of a midnight blue as the sun goes down. So with that said, I will call this purse a deep, royal midnight blue and it is stunning.

You will have to be a lover of blue to appreciate this purse, as it is very bold in tone, yet elegant at the same time. This is a very formal creation, 100% hand stitched and custom fashioned. I did a lot of pleating on this satin purse and overall, I am quite pleased with the results. A couple of my photos may make the purse look tilted or crooked but that is the angle of the camera or the way I stuffed the purse with tissue. This is a smaller purse, yet it will carry a few of your essentials. This purse is for the lady who prefers smaller. The satin is of fine quality. In between the satin and the lining is a soft felted cotton batting which gives more body and shape to the purse.


It has been stitched onto a vintage Ed B Robinson gold toned purse frame from the approx. 1940 - 1950 era. This frame is fully embellished with clear, multi sized and faceted, prong set rhinestones and is in wonderful vintage condition, as I am the first to apply a purse to it. The clasp is a beauty, it folds over the front of the purse and shuts closed securely. There are even rhinestones on the parts that hold the chain handle, how divine. This frame shows very little signs of it's many years of age and is quite lovely.


I chose to add a fully pleated gusset to this purse so the interior could be a bit roomier and a few accessories could be carried. Also, a pleated gusset adds charm that is not seen on other purses. The interior is lined with a fine quality golden brown satin that gives depth and contrast to this purse and there is a single, double walled pocket. Stuffed with tissue, this purse measures 5 inches from the top of the clasp to the bottom, 9 inches at it widest, the side gusset is 5/8 of an inch, the frame is 5 1/2 inches across and the serpentine carry handle drops the purse by 5 3/4 inches. This purse carries with a medium soft hand, comfortable on your wrist or in the palm of your hand. This is a dynamic little beauty and the only one of it's kind.
