Details

Wonderful vintage Caron of Houston Texas snap frame handbag with scattered golden leaves, sprays of luminescent lemon rhinestone crystals and a sea of bronzed bugle beads, quietly immersed with hints of color throughout. Design is framed on the front only and highlighted with lattice lace border on nubby textured, oatmeal colored, rigid canvas. All hardware and fittings are a polished gold color on this exquisite Caron of Houston, Texas 1950's snap purse. Wonderful addition to your retro handbag collection, or simply stand out from the sea of usual-suspects modern designer browns and blacks!

DIMENSIONS:

HEIGHT: 5 inches/ 12.5cm
LENGTH: 13 inches/ 33cm
DEPTH: 4 inches/ 10cm

Strap Drop: 6 inches/ 15cm

Interior lining is heavy black plastic vinyl with a convenient slip pocket. Handbag is in near mint vintage condition without major defects or flaws. All beadwork and hardware is intact. My nose is extremely sensitive and I do detect a slight perfume scent inside the bag. I'm assuming because it's in near mint condition, and the lining material isn't "breathable", the purse had been stored and preserved over an extended period of time. I've done my best to "air" it out. The scent is not wafting or overpowering, mind you, it's only slightly detectable if you're really looking for it and literally have your nose pressed into the fabric. Seriously not worth mentioning, but I thought it might help if someone else is as sensitive as myself. Nobody likes unexpected surprises!

*My personal recommendation is that if your vintage handbags are going to be stored over extended long periods of time, it's best to put packets of silica gel inside with tissue paper to obsorb any excess odors or dampness.

A true joy to work with this seller, and I plan to be back for more. Her knowledge of Danish porcelain is impressive, and she shares it generously. Fantastic customer service, delivering the item to my office (we live nearby). Thank you! I love the plate -- definitely more beautiful in person.
