What's a baby swan called??  You guess it, a Cygnet!!  This is a smaller swan, and it is  cuter than all heck!!! 

This bag is an authentic Louis Vuitton Cosmetic Pouch Bag Poche Toilette 19.  This one is the perfect small crossbody, coming in at about 7" wide by 5" tall and about 2" deep.  

This bag's exterior canvas is slightly faded, but she still looks good!  The interior Vuittonite (see below) was extremely sticky (I couldn't even read the date code), so I've removed it, leaving the bare canvas.  I've included an organizer inside to keep the bag's structure as well as all of your goodies in the right place.  This may be removed if desired.

The top edge is a beautiful blush pink leather lace which has been stitched by hand and perfectly matches the short braided handle strap.  The zipper had to be removed due to damage of the top section. I've added brass rivets to the sides to hold O-rings for the straps.  Two are included, the short pink braided one and the longer chain one (47").  Either can be removed.

About Vuittonite:  Prior to 1997, Louis Vuitton lined many of its bags with a vinyl-like material known as Vuittonite. It was used (and patented) by Louis Vuitton because its resistance to water makes it easy to clean. Unfortunately, when exposed to high heat or humidity, Vuittonite begins to deteriorate and peel away from the edges of the bag. Over time, it becomes increasingly sticky, forming a residue (which, in extreme cases, is black in color) that transfers to anything placed inside the bag. If your Vuittonite is starting to get sticky, try putting some talcum powder inside, lightly coating it.  It works!!!

Please note:  This is a vintage bag, and will show some wear.  I try to call out everything, but please make sure to look at the pictures!!
