A lovely quality 1950’s brown leather vintage handbag, made in England by Fassbender.
This stylish, single handle handbag has solid gold tone fittings and a brushed gold tone clasp. The top of the frame is inlaid with brown leather and the base is protected with two brass feet. The lining is pale beige suede and inside there is one large open pocket, edged in leather and a zipped pocket. The original mirror is present, still in its waxed paper.
The snap closure is tight and the general condition is very good, the bag appears to have had very little use. The base is clean and unmarked and there is no rubbing at the corners. There are some minor surface scratches and indentations on the front of the bag and a few larger scratches/indentations on the back (on the right hand side about two thirds down, please see the third photograph which shows the back).
Measures: width 29cm; height 19cm; depth 7cm. Handle drop is 16 cm to top of bag.
