This is a gorgeous, very eye catching high quality handbag made by top end British brand Rayne. It is in Jackie O style which oozes style and elegance. The Rayne brand is synonymous with hand made quality shoes and handbags which were worn by the Royal family, indeed HM the Queen's wedding shoes were made by Rayne. If the brand is good enough for the Queen...It is in black lizard effect patent leather (we don't think it is actual lizard skin but we may be wrong!) with the flap over in a tobacco brown textured patent leather. It is a high end handbag and looks it, beautifully designed and made and kept in excellent, virtually pristine condition showing hardly any sign of wear. The elegant gilt clasp which is a simple slip through for the black strap is still bright and shiny with no tarnish, the tobacco patent leather handles look unused and the front is flawless. The back is in similar condition looks new, as does the base. The inside is lined in a tobacco brown leather under the flap which again looks new, the rest of the inside is lined in a textured black leather, it is clean with no marks or stains and has the 'Rayne' name embossed in gilt on the leather. There is a metal ring to attach keys affixed to the zip of the zipped pocket and a little leather coin purse to match the textured black leather lining.
This is a beautiful handbag, a proper grown up handbag, of high quality, in excellent condition and from Rayne, a collectable top end vintage brand. It's dainty and small, large enough for essentials for daytime use yet suitable for evening wear too. With both black and brown in the handbag it's a very versatile colour combination which would accessorise most outfits. It would look fabulous with a little black dress or suit, or with creams or greys and is a timeless classic that can be used again and again. This would have been a very expensive handbag 'back in the day' and a new one of similar quality today would cost a four figure sum. Understated, classic and classy and as it's vintage no one else will be wearing the same...
Perfect gift for her
It is 8.5" x 8" x 3"
