This is a dainty vintage 60s navy raffia woven handbag, with postman's lock gilt clasp, it's largish and capacious. Very dolce vita. The back and sides of the handbag are made from a woven man made fabric that looks like raffia. There is a squarish boxy shape to the handbag which is in great condition has obviously had very little use. The raffia is in excellent condition, still glossy with minimal snags and the gilt postman's lock clasp is stil quite shiny with no minimal tarnish or loss of shine but the handle fixings have faded to a silver and have a couple of marks. The handbag lining is navy fabric, which is clean, with no marks or stains and there is a slip pocket for a mirror with a few stitchs missing. There are four gilt studs to protect the base of the handbag. It's a glamorous handbag, very Audrey Hepburn but also a great size for all essentials
A very useable vintage navy raffia style woven handbag, it's perfect for Summer/Autumn and would work for most occasions from work (add a quirky touch to a business suit), to caual wear team with red and white for a nautical look or capri pants and a Breton striped top for an Audry Hepburn look. It is large enough to accommodate essentials, including with plenty of room for an iPad mini, plus the usual purse, keys, make up etc. There is a label sewn in with Foreign Made on it.
It is 10" x 7" x 4.5"
