Delicate and sophisticated, the Jade Garden Handbag was inspired by the 15th century ancient artform of hand painting wall paper from China. Soothing and gentle images of flora and fauna in the countryside are captured in the wallpaper and in this stunning handbag.
The bag is created of Burmese Jade toned pebbled leather on the outside and finished in smooth violet toned napa leather on the inside. The bag is made in a tiny atelier in Northern Italy. Experienced Italian craftsmen make each bag with the utmost care by hand, one at a time. No production line manufacturing here.
Adorning the bag is a life sized jewelled dragonfly with a large body consisting of an amethyst toned Swarovski crystal. The playful tail is set with opal Swarovski crystals and the wings display mauve and aurora borealis. There is some hand enamelling on the wings and the entire piece is then bathed in a finish of Russian gold plate. The ornament is manufactured in the last remaining facility of its kind in Rhode Island USA.
Inside, the bag includes an attached zippy coin purse, a zippered pocket and dual pouches for smart phones and other personal essentials. A leather shoulder strap is also included.
The bag is classified as a satchel style and the measurements are as follows:
Height – 8 1/4”
Height – (including hand straps) – 13”
Width – 10”
