ckparis and 1920 art deco french purse



hey all, how are you?
these pix are of the vintage 1920's art deco french purse i got in gavilane paris
in the marais.
the bag is made of suede and is an amazing distressed eggplant brown. it may have been originally dyed black and years of age and use have created this
distressed purple/brown color.
aden told me he replaced the stones in the clasp and added a brass chain.
the original suede strap is still in tact.

see you on the astral plane.

I liked art deco accents as long as I can remember, probably stemmed from watching the Batman cartoon and it's deco style as a child. It's a beautiful find!
