This is a gorgeous vintage box purse made of marbled white and translucent yellow Lucite. We especially love the lucite twist clasp on this piece.
It has great style that will make any Spring or Summer wardrobe really pop!
As you can see, the handbag is made entirely with heavy Lucite.
The base of the box purse is characterized by marbled white Lucite which has a great texture and creamy color.
Unlike the more opaque base, the lid is made of translucent golden-yellow Lucite, and features a beautiful carved pattern.
The carvings are on the bottom of the lid, so they show through while the top remains completely smooth.
You will notice that the handbag's clear Lucite handle is quite unique. It has an unusual "twisted" look and is held securely to the lid with gold-tone hardware.
A simple twisting latch keep the lid securely closed and is made of oxidized gold-tone brass.
Finally, four dome-feet on the underside of the box purse keep it nice and level while preventing any scratching to it or surrounding surfaces.
The Lucite shows some very minor wear and a few equally minor surface scratches, while the brass hardware exhibits some oxidization and light scratching.
There is also a small area of tape residue on the bottom of the piece.
However, this kicky little box purse remains in very good vintage condition overall.
