    Ava Gardner Owned Mark Cross Hand Bag and Balenciaga Scarf. This elegant black matte satin bag is an original by Mark Cross, with the tag in place along the lining. The delicate satin exterior and interior are both in Very Fine condition with no pulls, tears or stains. The brass snap enclosure has minor scratches due to use (not visible when snapped) but all other hardware is in Excellent shape. Owned by Ava Gardner, this vintage bag measures 9" wide and 6" high, with the double handle drop measuring 5", and comes with matching satin coin purse. Also included is a 34" x 34" Balenciaga silk scarf with a striking abstract design and fringed edge. Not available through retail stores, Balenciaga scarves could only be purchased directly from the famous couture house, making vintage scarves like this one even more difficult to find. In Very Fine condition with three very small, minor stains to right side. From the Ava Gardner Estate.
