I’m saying “rare find” a lot lately! This purse is a keeper – a flat and tidy leather clutch that hinges open in the most convenient way. This was one of Etra’s best everyday designs from the Fifties.
I’ve found only one before, in a rather boring beige color. So, I like this rich charcoal much better. And, of course, a fine leather handbag is always preferred to vinyl or fabric for durability.
The only thing missing is the chain handle which attaches inside and folds away if you don’t want to use it. That is easy to replace. A little polish to the metal frame and it’s golden!
So much fun . . . . . . .
