Jackie’s chic Dior clutch
Description                           Estimate: $10,000 - $12,000          

Jacqueline Kennedy’s personally-owned and -used black satin fold-over clutch by Christian Dior, measuring 8.75 x 7, featuring a snap closure with two expanding interior compartments and a pocket on the reverse. The front flap is elegantly decorated with a bow, and “Christian Dior” is stamped in gold on the front of the pocket inside. Scattered soiling to front flap in inner compartments, a frayed area on the front from rubbing against the metal snap fastener, and general wear from frequent use, otherwise fine condition. This clutch originates from the estate of Officer James H. Boyer, Sr., who served on the US Capitol police force beginning in 1949. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from a descendent of Boyer, in part: “While continuing to serve on the Capitol police force, Boyer became a personal driver for the Kennedy family, often being called on at late hours, and was employed by Jackie Kennedy as a handyman at the Kennedy’s Georgetown home. Once, while she was clearing her closet, Jackie offered Boyer some of her worn shoes and handbags to give to his wife. This black satin clutch purse with 'Christian Dior' stamped in gold is one of those gifts.” With superior provenance this gorgeous clutch purse by an iconic designer is the epitome of Jackie Kennedy’s classic style as one of America’s greatest fashion icons of the era.
