Charles Kahn-Gold Lucite bag 3) Inventory # C00068: Charles Kahn-Gold Lucite bag
Glorious gold Charles Kahn Lucite bag. The diagonally carved 3/8" thick Lucite lid and contoured strap handle compliment each other beautifully. The gold three-ball latch and other metal hardware really sparkle. There is no label but style, color and hardware are clearly Charles Kahn. There is very slight surface wear to the body and clear bottom of the bag, but nothing overall to the over all effect. Measures 7 1/4 x 3 7/8 x 3 3/4 inches.

Classic Tortoise Bakelite Handbag Likely Rialto 4) Inventory # F00005: Classic Tortoise Bakelite Handbag Likely Rialto
Classic Tortoise Bakelite bags are increasingly difficult to find, especially in this sparking clean condition. This unmarked example is very similar to marked Rialto examples, differing only in its slim, rod handles and the arched top edge of the Presto Latch. The design of the lid carving is seen on other signed Rialto bags and. Care and storage of these bags is critical to their survival. This one shows no sign of chemical changes and it will include a silica packet to prevent moisture condensation inside when in storage. Excellent condition with only slight lacquer ware to the latch hardware. Measures an ample 8 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 5".

Curvaceous White Lucite Clutch 5) Inventory # 990368: Curvaceous White Lucite Clutch
Curvaceous lines and wonderful feel in the hand are important features in a clutch bag. This beauty has it all. Unmarked but solidly constructed, this was made by a good maker and probably once carried a paper label. The latch hardware is identical to that used by Rialto, but without the button trim. Spotless navy faille lines the interior. Very slight plating wear to the latch surface is the bag's only shortcoming. Measures 8 x 2 1/2 x 3 3/4".

Florida Handbags-Clear trapezoidal bag with acetate costume 8) Inventory # A00308: Florida Handbags-Clear trapezoidal bag with acetate costume
This remarkable Florida Handbag was a real education to me. I’ve had the clear trapezoidal body of the bag before, and never realized it came complete with a wardrobe of flexible acetate costumes that fit over the front latch and snap closed at the back! One can only imagine the myriad of choices that one might have had for the costuming of this bag!. Please check the detail picture to get an accurate idea of the unique shape of this bag. It’s TRAPEZOIDAL, not rectangular, but it shows best photographed top to bottom! This bag’s only defect is a tiny chip in the back top corner of the lid (see detail.) Four clear hemisphere feet. Complete down to the label. The diagonal measurement from corner to corner is 9 1/2 x 3 3/4 x 3 inches.

Florida Handbags-Kidney shaped body 9) Inventory # B00281: Florida Handbags-Kidney shaped body
Curvaceous unmarked Florida Handbag with gently upswept bottom line, countering the kidney shaped body and reverse curved clear Lucite handles. The diamond carved 1/4" thick Lucite lid has softened corners. The dainty 3-ball latch is more petite than some and compliments the overall elegance of the bag. There is some evidence of chemical reaction (probably perfume) in the interior that shows slightly when light comes through the body of the bag. When the bag is full, it's invisible. Measures 10 x 3 1/4 x 3 1/2".
