This purse is a great example of the things I love about handbags made in the 1950’s. The true size is about 10″x 12″x 2″ – not too big, but it can hold a lot and has many interesting features:
Soft fabric finished to mimic suede.
Several inside pockets and a matching satin lining
- High quality, attractive hardware
- Two large outside pockets worked into the design so that they are invisible
- A cute attached coin purse that keeps cash safe and accessible
So many of these older bags are in near-perfect condition, too – many with tissue paper inside. Owning fine accessory items and caring for them well (even without servants) used to be one of the hallmarks of an elegant lifestyle, and still is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
