Sweet little white acetate bag, perfect for summer or resort wear. The lid is embellished with seashells and hand-painted leaves. The envelope style lid has a simple pressure latch. The bag carries no makers mark, but the bottom reads "Made in USA," which likely indicates a late 50|s date. (Actually, after this bag was sold, I found a vintage ad for this bag, shells and all on page 29 of the May 1955 issue of Handbags & Accessories. So I am now quite sure of the attribution. The makers mark is on the powder puff. Click the Riviera Link in the descriptors listed below to see the ad!) Note the remarkable resemblance to the Wilardy bags with Compacts in the lid, which this bag undoubtedly was designed to emulate. Excellent condition. Measures 7 x 3 1/8 x 3 1/2"."

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID A00403). It sold for $85.00.
