This is a very eye catching and unusually gorgeous 60s/70s classic Ladylike style handbag from Holmes of Norwich in a rich burgundy red colour. It is in excellent condition with virtually no signs of use or age. The handles are firm and strong and the gilt frame and clasp are still shiny. We have this style of handbag in other colours but this is the first red one we've seen so quite rare, especially in thos condition. We particularly like the raised top bar and clasp. The inside of the handbag is lined in a cream grosgrain fabric which is in pristine condition looks unused. The Holmes name and logo are embossed in gilt above the slip pocket. The original mirror with paper sleeve is still with the handbag
A very stylish 60s/70s vintage Holmes of Norwich handbag, in a great colour, in an elegant design and from a sought after quality brand. What's not to love! It would accessorise smart and formal outfits, so suitable for weddings, the races etc and could also be dressed down for more casual wear, perfect for vintage events such as Goodwood Revival or Twinwood as well as to perk up a contemporary outfit. It is a good size for carrying all essentials and a bit more. Perfect gift for her.
It is 10.5" x 7" x 3"
