The Lustro Pearl finish gives the purse enamel its shine and protection from being rubbed off. The bracelet frame, link and bar handle and fringe are silver-tone. The clasp folds over the frame and snaps closed. 15-1/2 long from the top of the handle to the bottom of the fringe.
The purse alone is 7-1/4 long (excluding the clasp) plus 1 fringe, 5 wide at the frame and 5-3/4 wide at the widest. The handle has a drop of 7-1/4.
There appears to be two sizes of Gloria purses and this is the larger of the two. The clasp and hinges work fine. There is almost no wear to the paint on the body or on the clasp. Inside is lined in a tan fabric that is coming loose around the top edges and needs to be sewn back down. The scarce lining is in good condition as you can see in photos #9 and #10.
Very rare to find a Gloria purse with its original lining and with the painted clasp. When closed there are small gaps on each side of the clasp - see photo #12. I dont know if that is normal or not. When you lift the clasp the purse opens but does not spring open. One, possibly two, fringe pieces missing easy to fix.
Please look closely at the photographs since they are an important part of the description. I also have other vanity pieces and purses for sale and hope you will check my store inventory. Please ask questions if you have any.
