This is a super handbag, in a very sought after burgundy wine red colour from Rayne, a high end renowned brand which held a royal warrant from Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the company which made the shoes for her Majesty for her wedding in 1947. So if the brand was good enough for HM the Queen... It is in excellent condition looks hardly used. The patent leather is free of abrasions (the tiny lines are in the design) the gilt frame and beautiful clasp motif are still shiny with no loss of gilt or tarnish . The handle looks unused but does have very minor cracks at the joins which are not noticeable except on close inspection and don't affect the use or strength. It's a feature of patent that it cracks more easily than leather which is why some handbags have leather on the handles and side gussets. The handle is just long enough to be worn comfortably over the shoulder. The handbag is lined in a pale taupe calf leather with two slip pockets (with metal tips), a zipped purse with key ring and it still retains the matching leather coin purse. The lining is clean and free of any marks or stains just the odd tiny ding from use. The name Rayne is embossed in gilt on the lining.
This is a gorgeous handbag, classic and classy it is eye catching, elegant, from a top end brand so of of excellent quality and is in excellent condition, what's not to love! It would add a touch of class to any outfit, whether vintage or contemporary and is perfect for weddings and other smart occasions as well as less formal events and could be worn for work with a suit or simple shift. These don't come along often, especially in this very sought after colour so snap it up. A new handbag of this quality made today would cost well over a four figure sum.
Perfect gift for her.
It is 10" x 8." x 3"
