Strut your stuff with this one of a kind antique, authentic vintage 1950s glamorous golden owl purse.
On the grande scheme of handbag sizing, I would refer to this as a medium sized handbag. It has a striking trapezoidal shape with a wood enforced base and sturdy metal rivets all around. The base measures 3 1/4" thick by 10 1/2" wide. The bag is 10 1/2" tall. It has sturdy handles and an old fashioned twisting metal locking mechanism. I love all of the sequin and rhinestone embellishments. The bag has lost a few sequins and rhinestones over the years but that's what makes this such a classic antique piece. I think that it could also easily be restored by a crafty buyer. This would make a great little beach bag, travel tote, evening accessory or just add some extra shimmer and shine to an otherwise ordinary day.
The bag does not have a makers mark anywhere which leads me to believe that it might have even been handmade and/or made in very limited quantities and not for mass marketing purposes.
