This is a super stylish rare fuschia pink leather handbag, a real Mrs Maisel handbag in this vibrant colour. It is of excellent quality and in a pretty design with an intricate gilt frame and clasp (we think it's a Garfields judging by the frame design) but alas it's not in excellent condition. It has certainly suffered the slings and arrows of not quite outrageous use and a lack of good storage but at least it looks as though it's had a life and not been stuck away in the wardrobe! So, elegant handbag, in a great colour, slightly faded from the original colour visible inside. A few nicks to the leather on the frame but the leather on the main body is in surprisingly good condition (please see photos). The handles are firm and strong, it's the gilt hardware that lets the handbag down, suffering from scratches, scuffs and tarnish. The tan suede lining, with pink leather edged slip pockets and a zipped pocket has no major marks or stains but it is a little tired and grubby having been well used over the years. The suede will be cleaned before dispatch but don't expect miracles!
What would be a fabulous and highly collectable handbag, particularly in such a rare colour, is a Cinderella handbag that still deserves to go to the ball. But we don't think it's suitable for a gift, unless the giftee is well into vintage! But to add a pop of colour to your own outfits it would give a real lift and is priced accordingly, and you needn't be too precious about it.
It is 9.5" x 6.5" x 2.5"
