Description

Romantic Valentine gift! Vintage antiqued gold tone metal flake evening bag purse from Harry Levine. HL USA stamped inside. Antiqued metallic gold dots are printed against black on this vintage 1970s, patterned after the late 20s –early 30s, disco art nouveau style purse. Think of it as a Flapper bag, a Sunset Boulevard bag, an art nouveau bag or a disco bag.

Purse could have been made in the 60s, but from the feel of the materials used, probably not earlier than that. The Harry Levine label existed from the 50s and probably before.

The blackened / antiqued areas add a further 1920s flair to the bag. An antiqued gold tone metal frame of flowers, leaves and lions accents the top of this handbag.

Chain handle loops through each side, so you can make the chain longer, or shorten it by doubling the straps. Tuck the chain inside for a clutch bag. The bag has a soft, slightly padded body, with a little stiffener between the layers for structure. Kiss closure.

Measures:
Length: 6”
Height: 7.5”
Width: 1”or more, depending on contents you carry in it
Handle drop is 12"
or convert to double chain-strap by pulling through the loops on the frame and the handle drop is then 6".

MATERIAL: fabric, metal
LABEL: HL U.S.A.

♡ Very good vintage condition. There is some spotting on the inside of the bag frame that you can only see when you open the bag. The gold colored frame has a patina of age which looks quite natural, as does the body of the bag where some of the gold areas fade to black. In my humble opinion, this looks much better than if it were bright gold all over.

Additional policies

VINTAGE NOTE: As we who love them know, vintage pieces are special. They bring us style from another era and give us a unique look that can't be found at the mall clone stores. They are often wearable works of art. They also often carry marks from use or even from just being in storage, which can add to their style and give them character. Make sure that you are comfortable with this idea when purchasing vintage to wear or collect. I will do my best to describe and photograph well for you.

If you have a question about the condition or the size of an item, contact me and I will be glad to send/post more pictures or take more measurements, so that you know what you're getting!

SIZING NOTE: To ensure you get the best out of your item, please be sure to compare the listing size and measurements with your own size to get the best fit. Vintage sizing can be quite different than what we are familiar with today. It's often best to measure a similar item of your own clothing that fits the way you prefer, to do a comparison - this can be more accurate than measuring your body, since you may forget to add an inch or two for wiggle-room.

WISH LIST: Is there a vintage item you have never been able to find? Let me know - I may have it in my yet-to-be-listed pile! I would be glad to post it here for your consideration.

Vintage-INSPIRED: We have lovely brand new and gently used items with a vintage 'look and style' available elsewhere on the web. Contact for more info: fadaddict [at] gmail [dot] com.
