This is a very eye catching handbag in excellent condition with a pristine pale suede lining. It is glamorous, ladylike and a neat size. The exterior is a very soft leather which, although hard bodied, feels soft as it is padded under the leather covering. As a result of the softness of the leather it has accumulated the odd scratch or scuff despite the handbag having had very little use but in our view these aren't too noticeable and don't detract from the smart appearance of the handbag. They are visible in the photos below, accentuated by the flash. The gilt decorative detail,a border of squares, along the top on the back and the front of the handbag is very elegant and quite unusual. The gilt of the border and the gilt on the clasp and frame are in excellent bright, shiny, unscratched metal which looks brand new. The handles are stitched leather and firm and strong with no sign of wear. The lining is beautiful, a pale peach coloured suede with an open compartment and just one long zipped pocket along one side of the handbag with unusually a white suede lining inside the pocket. The lining is immaculate,looks new. There is no brand name on the handbag but the frame has the LBF made in England logo on it so it is an English manufacturer.
A gorgeous handbag in a neat and dainty size with the gilt decorative detail which takes it out of the run of the mill black Kelly bags category. It would be equally at home worn with evening dress as it would with smart day dress, it looks classy and would add a lift to a plain black dress or suit and ideal to complement chunky gold jewellery. Perfect gift for her.
It is 10" x 7" x 3"
