How adorable is this dainty little vintage lipstick red 60s/70s top handle bag by Freedex! It's fabulous, we love it, small but perfectly formed and in excellent condition. The faux leather patent is still in excellent condition still very shiny, with minimal marks or dings, a few above the clasp to the front (please see photos) which aren't too noticeable and should lessen with use and good storage. The black grosgrain lining is in clean condition with no marks from age or use. The flap over is decorated with gorgeous silver tone motifs, where the handles join the bag, which clash brilliantly with the red patent. Silvertone is unusual to find on bags as most tend to be gilt. The handles are still firm, strong and uncreased and look unused, the base is free from scuff marks usually found on the base of patent handbags from being placed on the floor. The Name Freedex is on a label sewn into the lining.
This is a rare handbag, especially with the silvertone motifs. It's cute and it's gorgeous, iconic 60s early 70s in a most sought after colour and from a sought after British brand. Not high end but it it could be worn anywhere to any event and accessorise day or evening outfits, can be worn with contemporary outfits and perfect for vintage events. It is big enough for all essentials and smart enough to wear anywhere and would add a pop of colour to any outfit . Perfect Valentine gift for her.
It is 9.5" x 7." x 3.5"
