This is a fun basket purse from the 1950's. This is an oversized bag, check out those measurements! Could be used as a fashionable picnic piece for a party or a photoshoot. It is in beautiful condition for it's age. Perfect for pairing with Rockabilly or Pinup looks. Will look awesome paired with casual looks too! Rock it with jeans and a tee at the Saturday Morning Market. Dress it up with high waisted trousers, a tucked in silk blouse and strappy heels. So many ways to style this look, from traditional 50's housewife to fashion forward trendy diva. There are black leather straps and a leather strap that hooks with a latch to open and close. The inside is lined in black linen and has one small side zipper pocket.
This vintage purse is in great condition! The woven basket material is in great shape and doesn't have any areas where the it is damaged! It is difficult to find a purse like this that hasn't been crushed a time or two...but this one has kept it's shape and it is very sturdy. The inside lining is in good shape and is clean. The leather is split a bit on the handle and you can see the brown of the leather showing through. Same with the leather closure and the leather underneath the locking clasp. Otherwise this bag is a beauty and is ready to take you places!
