    Valentino Purple Ombre Silk Rosier Tote
    The House of Valentino is known for its incredible craftsmanship and mastery of silk. This tote has that craftsmanship in spades. The exterior is covered in silk roses ombred from an iridescent purplish-gray to a dusty peach. It features light purple patent leather trim, base, handles, and strap closure, as well as gold hardware. The interior is dark purple silk with one zip pocket.
    Dimensions: 12" Width x 5" Depth x 10.5" Height

    Approximate Retail Value: $2,160

    This bag is in Very Good condition. The silk rosettes are slightly frayed, and there is some color transfer on the patent leather base, as well as light creasing to the handles. The gold plaque at the back of the bag still has the protective plastic attached. Comes with dustbag.
