Vintage 1950s large off-white structured handbag with pearl Lucite frame & top handle, floral embroidery, and gold glitter detail.
Great vintage condition; very little wear from age. Small repair at connection of one side of Lucite top handle by metal hinge (see photo). Repair is cleanly done and is very sturdy & secure. Very thin hairline crack on back of lucite frame at top of bag (pictured). A couple of very small beads on front of bag near gold glitter are loose (see detailed photo). Otherwise, no other flaws to note. No rips, tears, holes, punctures, stains, markings, or discoloration anywhere on the bag.
So many lovely details!
Main body of bag is made of off-white woven fabric with floral embroidery, gold glitter, and light-tan-colored beads on front side of bag. Entirety of body of bag is covered with clear vinyl and finished with clear tan vinyl piping.
Lucite frame is truly gorgeous. Frame overlaps onto front and backside of bag and extends to hinges on either side. Top handle is made of same Lucite material with two metal hinges that attach handle to frame.
Metal clasp closure with circular Lucite button of same kind at center of top. Clasp closure opens easily and closes securely.
Inside is lined with bronzy golden vinyl and has one side zippered pocket. Lining is very clean and fresh with very light wear.
Bottom of bag is very clean & has for metal feet.
