Vintage 1970s - large off white vinyl structured octagonal top handle purse / handbag - multicolored geometric embroidery - accessories


Definitely one of the coolest bags ever :)

Vintage 1970s large octagonal-shaped off-white leather structured handbag with top handles and gorgeous multicolored geometric embroidery.

Near perfect vintage condition; very minimal wear from age and use. Light linear mark near bottom of front / embroidered side of bag (see photo). Small spot of discoloration on bottom right side of back side of bag (also pictured). Some wear to metal clasp closure (pictured). No other visible flaws to note; no other stains, markings, areas of discoloration, deep scratches, worn areas, holes, rips, tears, open seams, loose thread or other issues.

The construction of this bag is truly amazing :)

Bag is shaped like a large octagon with a rectangular base. The sides of the purse fold in, but an reinforced on the inside with thin wooden panels, giving it extra structure and form. The base is also reinforced with wood on the inside (see photos of interior). One clear vinyl pocket attached to inside as well. Interior is super clean with no issues.

Embroidery on front side of bag is crisp, bright and clean with no visible issues.

Top handles are made of same leather material as rest of bag; handles are attached with four round buttons.

Bag closes at top with a rectangular panel that's attached to the back of the bag. The panel crosses over the top opening and closes the twisting metal clasp.

Four metal feet on bottom.

Made by Mahler.

Body of bag: 11.5" x 11" x 4.5" at widest
Top handles: 17.5" long, end to end, 0.75" wide
Base: 8.5" x 4"
