This is a beautiful vintage leather handbag, one of the flagship Waldybag handbags, the best range that were made by Waldybag back in the heyday of British made handbags. It is large and of excellent quality with use of the finest leathers and softest suede lining, it is in excellent condition with only evidence of careful use. The exterior leather has few marks or scuffs and those that are there are only visible on close inspection, please see photos. The twin handles are firm and strong, they stand unsupported and show no evidence of use. The gilt clasp is a particularly attractive one with no tarnish but a very slight diminution of the gilt. The elegant shaped gilt frame inside the handbag has minimal abrasions or loss of gilt. The lining of the handbag does not disappoint either. It is in the softest golden beige suede with the usual array of pockets and the Waldybag name embossed in gilt above the slip pockets. There is a matching large suede coin purse with leather covered frame, which is in the same leather as the exterior of the handbag and is in almost pristine condition. There is also the original mirror in its waxed paper sleeve, evidence of rare and careful use. The original swing ticket is with the handbag.
A fabulous handbag, from a top end vintage brand (can't get much higher than royalty and the V&A!) in a very wearable colour ( brown is the new black this year!) which is perfect for special occasions ( weddings, mother of the bride/ groom) but also large enough to be worn for meetings when a serious handbag is called for. Fabulous quality and not available on the high street.
Perfect gift for her.
It is 12" x 8" x 3"
