This one of our favourite styles of Lodix vintage handbags, this gorgeous gilt frame in the design of a bow is outstanding in our view. This handbag is also in a very wearable slate grey pearlescent (called glowcalf by lodix) colour. Lodix, motto 'handbags of taste' is a British company well known for making handbags in this pearlised leather, often with dramatic lucite decorated frames. This one is beautiful, it is in excellent virtually pristine condition save for a couple of minor scratches to the leather (please see photos).The gilt frame, as mentioned above, is absolutely gorgeous with the intricate and dainty bow detail incorporated onto the top bar which is very rare, as far as we're aware, exclusive to Lodix. The semi rigid handle is firm and strong with minimal creasing. The inside is clean and lined in a mid tan suede with just a few marks from age and use but no stains. The lining has lots of pockets, all edged in matching leather, with the Lodix logo embossed in gold and amazingly the matching coin purse is still with the handbag.
These Lodix handbags in pearlised colours are exquisite and very sought after but disappointingly not many have survived in good condition. This one is in a rare and very wearable colour, from a high end brand and with this gorgeous eye catching frame. It would be particularly suitable to wear for weddings, garden parties or anywhere a smart formal handbag is required and perfect to wear with tea dresses and frocks.
Perfect gift for her.
It is 11" x 8" x 3"
