This is a rare vintage handbag from this well known company. It is an elegant and unusual handbag of excellent quality and in super condition. The rolled top bar is covered in patent leather matching the central trim on the front of the handbag. The top bar has gilt end finials matching the gilt clasp and frame of the handbag.The single top handle is secure and firm with no creasing or wear. It is leaather imprinted with ostrich rather than genuine ostrich. The lining of this handbag has the Holmes usual grosgrain lining which in this particular handbag is in cream with zipped and slip pockets and the Holmes of Norwich logo embossed in gold on the leather of the lining. The lining ,as can be seen from the photos is in excellent clean condition, quite unusual for cream grosgrain to have survived so well.
A classic, quality handbag with a lot of workmanship displayed in the design and in excellent condition, could be worn anywhere a smart and formal handbag is required, weddings posh garden parties, christenings and of course for vintage events.
Perfect gift for her.
