Mid century designer evening bag

Offering a high style navy evening bag from famous designer Martin Van Schaak. This designer was so exclusive that he didn't have a public showroom. He called upon his society clientele in their homes where he would design custom purses according to their specifications. He was a great influence on other designers including Judith Leiber.

This navy purse is timeless in its style. It has transcended decades and presents itself as a stylistic purse with clean lines and simple elegance. It has smooth silk ribbon binding and its body is made of silk cords. The effect of vertical stripes gives it dimension and texture. The most unique aspect is the handle which is composed of intertwining loops of ribbon. Not as difficult as it sounds. The silk lining is perfect although some of it seems to have faded over time. Marked Martin Van Schaak New York. Dimensions 6 h x 9 w x2 d. Ca: 1960. Condition: Excellent

There are absolutely no marks or stains on the fabric.....any markings are a reflection of the light. It is in PERFECT condition.

Item ID: RL-104


Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Navy, Size: 9 x 6 x 2
