One of the rarest of all vintage lucite bags, this horizontal cylinder shape is a collector’s dream! Illustrated on page 33 of Gottlieb’s "A Certain Style," this Llewellyn bag was made between 1953 and 1956. The amber colored end caps, spherical feet and carved handle beads are BAKELITE. The center clear section is surface and reverse carved lucite. Signed in embossed lettering on the inside of one of the endcaps "Lewsid Jewel Llewellyn Inc. NYC" with their facets jewel logo. Unique metal conduit handle. Gold metal fittings are all in excellent condition. There is some fogging on the interior, so commonly seen in these bakelite-Lucite combination bags, but it is largely isolated to the bottom of the bag. Measures 5" high, 11" with handle and 5 1/2" in diameter. One of the most extraordinary bags ever made!

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID 990800).
