A stately architectural leather and tapestry handbag by Melbourne is what vintage handbag collecting is all about. The gracious curve of the body and handle is echoed in the texture of the tapestry. The hexagonal gold lift up latch opens to a spotless taupe vinyl interior. The single open pocket carries the Melbourne fabric label. A vintage mirror in the original tissue is included. The bag|s condition is excellent, with very minor wear, impossible to photograph on the handle. Measures 14 x 2 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches to the top of the handle.
This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID D00143).
