This is a super, large vintage leather handbag, in Kelly bag style in a dark tan textured leather with a tab front. It was made in England for the British leathergoods chain of shops, Salisburys, sadly long since closed down. It is a great quality handbag and in excellent condition. The leather has minumum scuffs from use (please see photos) and the dainty gilt clasp and frame are both still shiny with no age related tarnish, the handle looks unused no creasing or discolouration. The colour of the leather is most accurate in the close up of the clasp. The handbag is lined in a beige suede, which is clean with no marks or stains, just a little tired. It has leather edged slip pockets and a lipstick slip pocket. There is a tooth missing from the zip but it still works. The Salisburys label is still on the handbag.
A quintessentially 50s looking handbag, in classic tan textured leather and with the tab front (just add clumpy lace ups and a cardigan for a post war look!) and in a great size for all essentials. Perfect gift for her.
It is 11" x 10" x 3"
