Vintage 60s Damascene Jewel Purse


Vintage 60s handbag of damask art.

"Damascening" is the English term used to define the art of carving different metals (gold or silver) into a single pattern, usually floral and with birds, on a dark base.

From Syria the art has spread over the centuries to other countries (Japan, Indonesia, Spain).
The one in this handbag appears to be from Toledo, Spain.

A jewel accessory of rare beauty, built on a rigid and compact black frame, clutch closure.

In excellent vintage condition, except for tiny signs of aging.

Measurements: about 24 cm wide and 10 cm length + 12 cm handle
