The revelry of Mardi Gras has been quelled this year, but, in south Louisiana, a celebratory mood still prevails.
This Vintage Vivian Alexander piece certainly exhibits the latter.
The Rhea eggshell, from which this purse was made, is heavily gold-plated. We have produced very few of these gold-plated purses. It has been enameled in glossy black and translucent enamel, which is tinged with a tiny amount of gold mica. The effect is a muted gold and textural finish like one would find in a Venetian painting. Eight golden fleurs de lis punctuate the offset scallop pattern.
Don’t miss this chance to celebrate Mardi Gras, even without the parties and parades!
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
