#hb253 – DORSET HANDBAG / EVENING BAG - $68.00

THIS IS AN UNUSUAL ITEM AND QUITE A FIND! WHEN I PURCHASED THIS ITEM AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP, THE SELLER’S TAG DESCRIBED IT AS A “MAKE-UP BAG”, HOWEVER, I BELIEVE IT TO BE AN EVENING BAG. IT HAS TWO INTERIOR “POCKETS” WITH ELASTICIZED TOP EDGES. THE POCKETS RUN THE LENGTH OF THE HANDBAG. INTERIOR HAS “DORSET, FIFTH AVENUE”. HANDBAG MEASURES 8” X 3 ½”.

#hb248 – DARK NAVY HANDBAG SOLD

ANOTHER VINTAGE PURSE FROM MY COLLECTION! ROGER AND I HAVE DEBATED THE COLOR OF THIS BAG – I THINK IT’S VERY DARK NAVY, HE SAYS IT’S BLACK – PHOTO IS ACCURATE SO YOU BE THE JUDGE. PURSE MEASURES 10 ¼” X 4 ¼” X 3 ½” AND IS IN SUPER CONDITION. THE ONLY “USE” EVIDENCE I COULD FIND IS A FEW STORAGE MARKS AND THERE ARE SOME MARKS AT THE CLASP AREA (FROM OPENING THE PURSE, SCRATCHING THE BAG WITH A FINGERNAIL – SORRY, I’M CERTAIN I DID THAT). THIS IS A VERY NICE PURSE – EITHER DARK NAVY BLACK – YOU’LL LOVE!

#hb247 – VINTAGE RED HANDBAG (UNUSUAL SHAPE) SOLD

THIS IS ONE OF THE NEATEST VINTAGE HANDBAGS IN OUR INVENTORY! AS IS THE CASE WITH MOST OF THE VINTAGE BAGS WE HAVE LISTED, THIS ONE IS FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION. BEFORE I LEFT THE CORPORATE WORLD, I ALWAYS CARRIED A VINTAGE BAG (AND BROUGHT MY LUNCH IN A VINTAGE SCOOBY DOO METAL LUNCHBOX!). I PURCHASED THIS PURSE MANY YEARS AGO AT AN ANTIQUE SHOW IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE. OTHER THAN A SMALL AMOUNT OF COLOR WEAR TO TOP CORNERS, PURSE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION INSIDE AND OUT. THERE IS A MIRROR INSIDE THAT HAS A LITTLE HOLDER MARKED PALIZZIO, NEW YORK (THE PURSE ITSELF HAS NO MARKINGS). THERE IS ALSO A SMALL COMB (ORIGINAL) AND A BLACK COIN PURSE (I ADDED). INSIDE WAS A BUSINESS CARD FROM “BILLINGS BEAUTY SHOP, 2810 GRANNY WHITE RD, NASHVILLE 4, TENN”. THE PHONE NUMBER WAS “AMHERST 9-4559” AND THE SHOP WAS OWNED BY “O.E. BILLINGS, PROP.”. THIS LITTLE CARD WAS IN THE PURSE WHEN I PURCHASED AND IT JUST SEEMED RIGHT TO LEAVE IT THERE.

GORGEOUS RED LEATHER CLUTCH STYLE HANDBAG! PURSE HAS INTERIOR LABEL “STRASBERG’S, LOUISVILLE”, IT MEASURES 14” LONG, AND IS IN SUPER CONDITION. INTERIOR IS SPOTLESS, EXTERIOR HAS VERY, VERY MINOR WEAR ON BOTTOM (OF ABSOLUTELY NO CONSEQUENCE). FROM MY COLLECTION, TIME TO SHARE!

#hb244 – BEADED FLORAL COIN PURSE - $28.00

PRETTY COLORS ON THIS BEADED COIN PURSE! IT HAS BRIGHT GREEN BEADS AND FRONT HAS A BIG FLOWER – REMINDS ME OF A POINSETTIA. MEASURES 3 ¼” DIAMETER AND HAS NO MISSING BEADS. THE INTERIOR (GREEN) LINING HAS A SMALL DISCOLORATION – LIKE PERFUME WOULD CAUSE – THAT’S IT! HAS INTERIOR LABEL “MADE IN KOREA”.

 

#hb243 – GRAPE CLUSTER BEADED COIN PURSE - $38.00

AS WITH THE MAJORITY OF MY RECENTLY LISTED HANDBAGS, THIS ONE IS FROM MY COLLECTION – I PURCHASED IT AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP OVER 13 YEARS AGO! IT’S JUST A LITTLE DIFFERENT AND THAT’S WHY IT CAUGHT MY ATTENTION. IT’S A BEADED GRAPE CLUSTER AND MEASURES 4 ¼” (NOT INCLUDING CLASP) X 2 ¾” (CLOSED). IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.


 

#hb242 – CHILD’S (OR DOLL’S) VINTAGE BEADED HANDBAG - $100.00

I PURCHASED THIS LITTLE HANDBAG AT AN ANTIQUE SHOP IN 2000 – IT JUST CAUGHT MY EYE! LITTLE PURSE IS PINK WITH A SWAN DESIGN ON FRONT, BACK IS PINK (NO DESIGN) AND AS CAN BE SEEN PHOTOS, THERE IS A SMALL NUMBER (PROBABLY LESS THAN A DOZEN) OF MISSING BEADS. BAG IS 3 ¾” X 2 ¼” – NOT INCLUDING THE CARRY HANDLE/STRAP. IT HAS INTERIOR LABEL “MADE IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA”. LITTLE PURSE WOULD BE A SUPER VINTAGE ACCESSORY FOR A DOLL!

ANOTHER LOVELY BEADED EVENING BAG! THERE IS INTERIOR LABEL “HAND MADE IN BELGIUM”. THIS IS ONE OF THE OLDER BEADED BELGIUM BAGS WE HAVE LISTED, IT HAS BEEN USED AND DOES HAVE SOME MISSING BEADS. INTERIOR IS CLEAN. THIS IS A VERY NICE, FEMININE VINTAGE HANDBAG.

 

#hb240 – BELGIUM BEADED EVENING BAG - $30.00

ANOTHER NEAT BEADED EVENING BAG! THIS LITTLE BAG HAS AN ATTACHED LOOP ON BACK FOR CARRYING BUT I WOULD RECOMMEND JUST USING AS A CLUTCH BECAUSE IF YOU PUT MUCH IN THE BAG, THE WEIGHT MAY DAMAGE THE LOOP. ALL BEADS APPEAR TO BE PRESENT BUT THERE ARE OODLES AND I MAY HAVE OVERLOOKED SOME BUT I DIDN’T NOTICE ANY MISSING. BAG MEASURES 6” X 4”, HAS INTERIOR LABEL “HAND MADE IN BELGIUM”, AND IS IN SUPER CONDITION. ORIGINAL MIRROR IS STILL INSIDE BAG. PRETTY!

HANDBAG LOOKS NEW INSIDE AND OUT (I KNOW THAT I NEVER USED IT!). JOSEF HANDBAGS ARE DIFFICULT TO FIND BECAUSE THEY ARE SO HIGHLY SOUGHT BY COLLECTORS. IT TOOK ME MANY YEARS TO FIND THE ONES THAT I HAVE LISTED.

#hb236 – JOSEF BEADED CLUTCH HANDBAG BY BONWIT TELLER - $180.00

THIS JOSEF HANDBAG HAS BEEN A PART OF MY VINTAGE COLLECTION FOR MANY YEARS! JOSEF BAGS ARE RATHER DIFFICULT TO FIND – OVER THE YEARS, I COLLECTED LESS THAN A DOZEN.
