Vintage C. 50’s Ilene Marbled Gray Lucite Purse w/Hidden Handle for Clutch

This vintage gray Lucite purse by Ilene is so versatile. It features a silver metal handle, which is made to tuck inside the purse so you can use it as a clutch as well.

Please note the purse shows a reflection of the lace.

The style is great; the top flares out has a “dip” in the center. There is a silver “ball” closure, which you push in to open. The sides are done in sturdy clear plastic, which are in wonderful condition (no tears, splits, etc.). The inside in lined in a brownish burgundy textured taffeta, which is glued to the sides; it is not a separate piece. The label reads: Ilene, Made in U.S.A., London, New York, Paris.

The bottom has four silver metal rivets.

The overall condition is excellent, with the following minor imperfections to note: there are NO cracks/splits in the Lucite. There are two tiny nicks along the top edge & some rough spots along the top edge as well. As is the case with most Lucite pieces, there are some light scratches, but nothing that stands out at all. The bottom has two small raised areas along the metal frame, but they are not cracks, splits, etc. They may be original to the purse.

The purse measures approx. 8 ½” from the top of the handle to the bottom. The handle has a 3 ¼” drop. The top of the purse is 7 7/8” across. From purse top to bottom it is approx. 5 ½”. At the side it is 2 ½”.

This is a great looking & versatile purse which you will love to wear; it can easily be worn dressed up or down.
