Purse has some fading and discolouration and one handle is badly worn and detached from the top of the bag. Surface weave has rubbed with use. The body of the bag has surface fibres in gold and is gold stitched with rows of machine stitching; fringed and plaited top. Two handles attached to the top with tassles. Perhaps mass produced for the tourist trade.
