Vintage 1950s Tan Leather Handbag - Vintage Bags
This is a gorgeous original 1950s top quality handbag, made in England by Marquessa, in genuine textured and veined leather in a Tan shade. and fully lined in soft Tan suede.
Made in England in the 1950's this handbag is in excellent condition. Almost as fresh & clean as when new. It has a few very small scuff marks – difficult to see. There are two single strap handles which are attached to the bag with gilt hooks. The frame and clasp are gilt, and are pristine and all in perfect working order. The clasp has a few minor scuffs. It gives a lovely click when fastened. I love that sound that vintage handbags have when you close them.
The inside is lined with suede. At the very base of the inside of the bag there are three or four small ink marks and there is a teeny tiny mark just under the right hand hinge. Inside there are lots of pockets, three on each side, two with a zipper closure and four open. Each of the pockets is lined with silk. There is also a small matching suede coin purse with a trim that matches the leather of the bag, and a silk interior, and a double sided pocket mirror.
It's hard to find bags of this age that are still in great condition. This is one of them. Pure Class.
