A vintage 60s 70s absolutely gorgeous dainty raffia style crocheted or woven 'dolce vita' style handbag (think Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday, open top sports cars, big sunglasses and head scarves) with a wooden handle and gilt clasp. The handbag is in a rare coppery shade with iridescent beads which catch the light beautifully, very on trend and perfect for Spring and Summer The colour is quite accurate in the photos, it is in excellent clean condition both inside and out. The brown fabric lining is clean and has minimal wear. It is in excellent condition, no snagged or broken bits of woven/crocheted fabric, the woven crocheted fabric is nylon so more hard wearing than raffia and the base colour of the fabric is deep brown with copper iridescent beads woven into the fabric of the bag. There are rigid sides to the handbag and the twin wooden handles are in excellent as new condition.The gilt top bar is covered in toning leather. There is an elegant and dainty gilt clasp, still shiny minimal loss of gilt. The lining has one area of wear, near the fold in a side gusset, and a loose stitch to the slip pocket.
A very dainty little vintage 60s 70s handbag in straw/raffia effect, in a rare and unusual colour with the coppery beads. It would be perfect to accessorise pretty little floral frocks which are currently arriving in the shops or a simple shift dress. Suitable for wearing for casual or smart events, to the races, weddings, parties and barbecues. A real statement piece in a rare colour and very eye catching
