No. 778 – Navy Iridescent with Grapes

Friday, March 17th, 2017

Description:  The photo does not do this bag justice but, owing to the high level of metallics used in the central panel fabric, the camera wanted to distort the pattern – compensating for that has darkened the overall result.  This is vintage silk from a Fukuro Obi, combining the pattern with the solid of the same Obi; lined in a copper satin.  The button is a vintage collectible, containing numerous metals with the most unusual being the pewter in the leaves; corresponding navy blue shoulder cord.  This is a beautiful piece!

Size:  6 W  X  9 1/2 L inches

Price:  $109.00
