Generously sized 50s/60s vintage caramel tan faux leather structured box handbag with twin top handles, lined in caramel moiré fabric with brass claps closure.
Generously sized 50s/60s vintage caramel tan faux leather structured box handbag with twin top handles and gusseted sections on both sides of the main compartment which has numerous storage pockets and a central zipped pocket containing the original good sized mirror. The bag is lined in caramel moiré fabric and has a brass clasp closure with keyhole (original key is missing) and four brass ‘feet’. It has a good weight to it and measures approx 12½” x 8” x 4”, in very good vintage condition with a bit of tarnishing to the clasp. It has a bit of a musty aroma and could do with a good air following long term storage.
Customers are asked to bear in mind that vintage garment sizes bear little or no resemblance to contemporary sizes. Furthermore, current high street size labels are inconsistent, with M&S and Wallis being noted for their generous proportions while others come up on the small side.
Please always refer to the measurements provided in the item description rather than the garment label size, and note that any ‘best fit’ suggestion we make will be based on modern day sizing. By way of example, our own suggested standard size 12 dress has an underarm to underarm measurement of approximately 19" with a waist size of 30".
In order to best gauge the suitability of an item, you may find it useful to compare our stated measurements with those of one of your own garments which is a comfortable fit. Our garment measurements are taken with the item laid flat, and all sizes in our descriptions are approximate.
