Pretty in Paisley + Fashionable in Floral

This vintage la france bag is an attention grabber with its bold floral paisley print. I date the bag to the 1960s, though it could be late '50s. The bag is made of a soft velveteen material. There are four bottom feet.

la France was an American handbag company that made copied French designs. In a 1936 advertising poster aimed at buyers, la france states, 'Our Handbags are Smartly-Styled Reproductions of Authentic French Models'.

History/Backstory: This is a Virginia find that has been stored away, waiting for the right arm.

Condition: Excellent. Lining is clean. The la france marking has faded a bit but still visible. Exterior fabric in great condition. The interior clasp show signs of wear from where the pin goes in to close the bag.

The bag has two interior pockets. The pockets face each other, one at the back, one at the front. The interior back pocket has one zippered compartment and an outside compartment.


Height: about 9"

Width: 13"

Depth: 2 1/2"

Handle Drop: 5"

Colors: Gleaming Gold, Rich Red, Beautiful Black, Magnificent Marigold

Smoke free home.

Packaging: The bag will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail. I have listed the rates for USPS Flat Rate Medium Box. If it is cheaper to ship USPS Priority, I will do that and refund the shipping difference. Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method. I love to combine shipping.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.

These shoes would make a perfect pairing:
