This is a superb example of a Holmes of Norwich bag in a rich mottled gold/mustard colour with a cream grosgrain lining. The handbag has twin handles which are strong and intact and in a wider size than the usual so a nice feature of the handbag. It has a leather covered top bar and with a bright untarnished gilt frame where visible. The clasp is firm and in a bright gilt finish with minimal tarnish or loss of gilt.The cream grosgrain lining is immaculate, the handbag looks unused, with the Holmes of Norwich logo embossed in gold on the leather lined section of the bag.
This is a gorgeous, rich and glamorous looking Holmes bag in a most unusual shade of gold/mustard which would complement myriad coloured outfits both vintage and contemporary and would be particularly suitable as a 'mother of the bride' (or groom) handbag, it looks like a 'special' bag, certainly not ordinary or everyday and would add a pop of colour to even the most businesslike grey suit.
It is 10" x 7" x 3"
