Era: 1940's
Hand-made in Belgium

A beautiful clutch purse by WALBORG. Clutch is made of ivory satin, covered by hundreds of ivory seed beads. I can't imagine sewing on all those tiny beads by hand.

This clutch is in fair condition. There is a small area on the front missing a few beads. Appears someone tried to repair it at some point. There is also a stain on the inside of the flap (see photo). The interior is ivory satin, with one major compartment, and what looks like a few pen marks. The flap is secured with a snap. The snap works well.

The label reads "Made in Belgium by hand WALBORG." Walborg purses were only made in Europe during the 1940's. Clutch measures 7" x 4 1/4" x 1/2".

WALBORG purses were very popular and known for their original designs and quality craftsmanship.

Hi! Hoping to win! The brooch is Avon?? Looks more pricey than an Avon of current vintage. Must be older & a vintage piece!!
Nov 30th, 2013 at 11:56:33 AM PST by
Hello! I didn't even notice the Avon brand until I reviewed the photographs to post. Surprised me too. Just found an ETSY listing of the exact same brooch listed for $18, but no info on an estimated date or any additional info. Have fun bidding, and Thanks!

Two additional photos of the cameo are now posted. I also discovered that the cameo is made by Avon.

Would you be adding a tracking # for these items?
Nov 29th, 2013 at 4:31:34 AM PST by
Great question, and indeed I will. I will ship via Priority, which includes tracking, and I will ship the items either the same day or the next day, depending upon the time payment is received. Each item will be carefully wrapped and securely packaged. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for F&W. I'm already a fan of yours :) I am obsessed with clothing. None of the new stuff though. I crave the old, broken in, has a thousand stories tell pieces of clothing. Just began educating myself on the fashions of the Victorian era. Fun!

FYI fellow Listians: I just submitted a help ticket for assistance with phone verification. Hopefully the issue will be resolved within a couple days.Thanks for all the great advice!

Hi! Yes, the lot is in good condition. Not sure how old the shawls or brooch are, but the clutch and perfume sample are for sure in good condition given their age. Was so tickled to find the perfume sample in the clutch.
