One of the nicest vintage 60's wicker handbags I've had in my possession in a long time. These bags were well liked by their owners and often well worn. This structured handbag is made with light wicker that does not appear to be coated (sometimes the wicker is coated with a clear laminate). The latch is dark brown leather. There are four feet and the bag sits firmly and squarely. The interior is accordion style with three sections, 2-sides and a center zipper section. There is also a large side slip pocket. The interior is cream vinyl and is relatively clean. Minor wear to the gold tone hardware suitable for a bag this age. A lovely summer purse.

Frequently asked questions about DuncanLovesTess

Measurements are provided in inches and all measurements are approximate. Clothing is measured on a flat surface with a flexible dressmakers tape and measurements for chest, waist, hips should be doubled. We also provide the dress form measurement as a basis for seeing how the garment fits.

Length - Shoulder to hem
Length waist - Shoulder to defined waist
Bust/chest - Underarm to underarm (need to double)
Waist - Width at natural waist (need to double)
Hips - 5-6" below natural waist (need to double)
Sleeve length - Shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve
Back - Shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Halter Back - Under arm to under arm
Using a flexible dressmaker tape:

Insole: place tip of tape measure at toe, follow the footbed to the heel (interior)
Sole: toe to edge of heel (exterior)
Ball: 3" from tip of toe, measure width of sole (exterior)
Heel: measure the heel only (exterior)
We rarely describe an item as being in "mint" or "excellent" condition. Our belief is that a garment 20-100 years old probably has a flaw or two we did not catch. Most of the Items we sell are in "good" to "very good" condition, meaning there is light wear suitable for the garment's age, but has no holes, tears, rips, or stains unless noted. We avoid selling items in poor condition unless there is something really unique about the garment or it is being sold as "distressed" for fashion or for re-use.
When converting vintage to modern sizing we reference a measurement guide from J.Crew. All measurements are in inches.

XXS/00 Bust 31.5 Waist 24 Hip 34
XS /0 32.5 25 35
XS/2 33.5 26 36
S/4 34.5 27 37
S/6 35.5 28 38
M/8 36.5 29 39

Yes!! We are currently converting our items to the new Etsy shipping calculator which should give you a more accurate shipping rate on one item. However we are a bit uncertain how a second item is factored into the shipping costs under the calculator. Since we ship by weight, any overages will be refunded via the method you paid.
