This is an exquisite vintage handbag made by Koret, and sold through Bergdorf Goodman, NY. Pleated navy satin fabric on the outside, with a gold tone, rhinestone embellished closure. It has an interior, chain-attached coin purse (for easy retrieval). Koret, a top of the line ladies purse company, was favored by such devotees as Claudette Colbert, Grace Kelley, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Madeline Albright. Made exclusively for Bergdorf Goodman (the luxury goods department store on Fifth Avenue), this deluxe handbag is c. 1950’s.

It is in very good vintage condition. The two-tone blue interior is slightly deeper in color, as compared to the navy exterior. One rhinestone was missing on the clasp, and it has been replaced. The purse closes with a satisfying click, and is secure (press equally at both ends). Its “as found” appearance is luxurious, and would be a beautiful accessory for an evening out or other special occasion.
CONDITION STATEMENTS (reflected in pricing):
• Small 1/8” hole on upper left pleated area, visible, but you have to look closely
• Fading to the outside. Light soiling on the interior.
• Slight crushing of pleats on one side. Could be re-conditioned.
• Some edge wear on wrapped part of the frame.

ABOUT KORET: Richard Koret was a designer and visionary who had a passion for handbags, and whose innovations included functional hardware, handles, and shapes. His clientele included women of high fashion (and impeccable taste). Koret continues in its success, today.
