Very ladylike and elegant 1950’s/early '60's small, mid brown calfskin handbag, with a distinctive round button lift clasp, inlaid with leather. The single handle is attached at either side with matching smaller buttons.
This small bag has a lovely boxy shape, in a very high quality soft, fine grain calfskin. The lining is a contrasting beige rayon taffeta and inside there is one open pocket and a lipstick pocket. The bag is marked in gold lettering under the front flap "London Made Real Calf".
The condition is very good. There are a few light scratches to the very soft leather and some creasing on the underside of the handle. There is no wear to the edges or base and the lining is clean and unmarked.
Measures: width 26cm, height 13cm, handle drop 11cm (from top of handle to top of bag), depth 8cm.
