This is a very elegant and understated classic handbag from Mappin and Webb in a dark navy blue lizard skin which is much rarer to find than the more usual browns and black. It is in excellent condition we would say almost mint, the outside has no wear at all and the pale blue suede lining is clean with only the odd mark from use. Both the front and back of the handbag have a feature pleat down the centre of the handbag. As mentioned the skins throughout the handbag, even to the base are immaculate with no signs of use. The handle is lizard skin. There are no cracks or splits to the skins on the handle. The gilt clasp is an attractive simple design with no hint of tarnish. The frame is lizard skin covered. The handbag is lined in a palest blue suede which has both a zipped pocket and a slip pocket. The Mappin and Webb label is fixed to the lining.
A super handbag, in Kelly bag style from a high end collectable and world renowned brand, in a rare colour which is particularly difficult to find in such super condition. This handbag would complement any number of outfits, both formal and casual and could be worn to even the smartest gatherings, well it is Mappin & Webb...
This would make a super gift for her.
It is 10" x 7" x 2.5"
