Look what cropped up yesterday? 3 beautiful accessories from the Fifties – handbags and a silk scarf.
What’s so special about these is their rarity and excellent condition. The scarf is perfect in gorgeous silk, with no snags, holes or hemming problems.
The raffia purse is rare and very clean. The weaving is undamaged, as is the liner! It’s only issue is a bit of discoloration in places – probably from sun.
The white purse is hard to see in detail because of the glare but is totally covered in TINY white seed beads. Excepting for a few missing beads near the clasp, there is no damage, inside or out. It was made in Belgium for Bonwit Teller.
Couldn’t be more pleased. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
