This Fabulous and rare genuine Van Cleef and Arpels real gemstone jeweled clutch is a rare find. this is possibly from the roaring 1920s, of elaborate opulence!!. it is in excellent vintage condition. You will not find another piece quite like this anytime soon!!  This is museum quality piece. The idea of investing in high quality distinctive jewellery is not new.  usually when the market takes a down turn investors  focus on buying Jewelery with provenance such as this amazing gemstone encrusted clutch. if you do your research on Van cleef and arpels you will also find that  Van Cleef & Arpels exhibits museum pieces and sometimes resells original vintage signature prized items owned by collectors.

Note  A less expensive one with gemstones on only one side of the bag ( unlike this bag with gemstones all over on both sides of the bag) on velvet is valued by penny lane in 2009 at 45,000 pounds, that is Almost  $80,000 see the url here http://pennylanecollectables.blogspot.com/2009/07/van-cleef-and-arpels-ruby-and-emerald.html

This was one of the early  hand bags made by Van cleef and Arpels. Search the internet for these van cleef and arpels bag vintage bags, they do not come up usually even at high end auction houses . Custom made by Van Cleef and Arpels early 1900's  there is no other like this  left from the van cleef collection.i have the other cream one!! This is guaranteed to be original Van Cleef and Arpels or your money bag otherwise all sales are final. This is genuine Museum Quality. At high end auction this will probably fetch over $200,000 +. Van Cleef and Arpels do not make any more gemstone purses. They stopped making handbags/purses  years ago, and ths one was made in the 1900 to 1920's .  so this is truly an investment and  is museum quality. You can also call Van cleef and give them the serial number and see for yourself that this is so rare. This is in Genuine musuem quality Van cleef and Arpels clutch bag!! !! it is an old world style black velvet with elaborate custom gold metallic applique that has minimal snags ( and thus further discounted drastically because of the minimal snags) and genuine mounted gemstones!!Please see below for the total number of genuine gemstones that are on this bag and their measurements!!  Before shipping it out to you i will get a signed and noted copy from a certified jewler stating that these are genuine gemstones. The gemstones total more than 70 carats of gemstones. I barely use it, i have to get it from the bank vault everytime i want to use it.  it is in excellent condition for such a vintage item.
