A fabulous barrel shaper Toro handbag with distinctive metal clad handle. The translucent lucite lid caps this unusual bag with a tortoise glow. The body is covered in textured raffia in dark brown and tan. The gold metal fittings gleam! The makers mark is present on the lid mounted mirror which shows appropriate age speckling. The interior is fully lined in delicious rust colored moiré|, spotless except for darkening at the very bottom of the interior where adhesive attaches the lining to the bag. Very slight fading at the top of the lining. This is a highly desirable collectible bag, especially for the Vintage Maven who uses her handbags. Measures 6" in diameter at the bottom and 7 1/2" at the top and increases in height from 7 1/2" at the front to 8 1/4" at the back!
