Vintage 1950s paisley-pattern black fabric handbag with goldtone fittings. This was such a great find! The fabric is beautiful--a tone-on-tone woven paisley pattern. The frame is a shiny goldtone metal, with a brushed goldtone accent piece at the clasp closure in front. The frame has shiny black inserts in some sort of plastic material (Lucite?) in front and the back side (of the frame) is plain. Lined in black satin with one working-zipper compartment (and a little surprise inside) and one open pocket compartment. Marked "la france." (Click on pictures to view close-up details.)

This bag is clean, clean, clean--in excellent vintage condition, superior construction and although dainty-looking, it's sturdy. It's the kind of item that one wouldn't hesitate to give as a gift because it's such a little treasure in amazing condition for its age. Perfect accessory for that little black dress or dressed-up blue jeans. Marked "la france."

Approximate Dimensions:
Handle drop: 5 1/2 in.
Width: 10 1/4 in.
Height (excluding handle & clasp): 7 in.
