This is a very nice little evening bag. There is a tag inside that reads hand made in HongKong. The zipper is made of brass and is in working order. There is one thread that has been broken (aprox. 1/4" L.) with about 4 seed beads missing. You can see this in the photo. This is easily repaired. The beads should be easily matched. It is either black or dark navy in color. It is one of those times that it looks navy in one light and black in another. It is really very nice. It measures approx. 8"X3 3/4". The shipping fees quoted are for first class/No insurance in USA.
