This is a very nice quality evening clutch sold by Zingraff, located at 184 rue de Rivoli, Paris. Zingraff is a luxury retailer, founded in 1900, traditionally specializing in opera glasses, but also selling sewing kits, clocks and other small “objets de virtue”. I assume that this clutch was sold as a “go with” a pair of opera glasses, for an evening out at the theatre. I’m unsure of its exact age, but I would think 1960s. It is covered with red beading on the exterior and red satin on interior. It is made in a fold over style, secured closed with a snap. It has a single interior compartment. It measures 8 3/8” by 4 1/2” closed. It is in very good condition with only a light ink mark on the interior flap. One of the labels reads “Hand Made in France” while the other is the label of the retailer. Lovely quality - Parisians have such sophistication and a sense of style!
