Wide, and the strap is 3 1/2? The fabric on the inside of the purse is nice and clean and is a gold color. The mesh on the outside of the bag is not real gold but is metal made to look like gold. This purse is good condition with the mesh still well attached to the top. It opens and closes nicely.
There are some usage marks along the top edge and there is a little bit of discoloration on a few of the small pieces of mesh and on the strap. This is really in good shape and would make a great addition to your collection. Please view pictures for more details!
