Vintage we estimate late 1940's. Make is Waldybag and Made in England.
Black guipure lace front and bag set over brown silky satin material.The handle is also brown satin.
Lined in pink silky material.One long pocket,one small and 2 lipstick size ones! No visible stains
The twist and close clasp has a crystal set into each little gold cup.
Please note this bag is not in pristine condition.The standing broad base is brown silky material , and it has various little dark stains on it,if only bags could talk!The image below has not picked up the stains on the base.
The handle has a strange feature whereas the sewn joins are on the outside,carry handles normaly are finished on the inner side,not the outer! The bag is in good overall condition considering the age .there are no rips or snags on the back or front of guipure lace.
The main fault,if it can be described as a fault is the aroma of mothballs!
Obviously has been lovingly stored with one.
This gorgeous and unusual little bag is a one off and would look stunning with that lbd or even red,and black shoes.
If you want perfection this bag is not for you. If you want exquisite and something that is unique,and can overlook the underneath marks,then you will love this little vintage bag.
Dimensions are 9.5 inches x 6 inches x1.5 inches
From top of handle to base of bag measures 1 inches
