Stylecraft began their operation of making Handbags and purses in 1938 out of New York and shortly thereafter moved operations to Miami. They are well known for their quality crafted purses and handbags. They were especially known for their Lucite designs presented in the late 40's because of the lack of metals due to World War II.
This stylish handbag in in great condition. It seems to be unused, at least by looking inside at the thick and luxurious satin fabric in light yellow. Light linings really appeal to me, because you can find items in your handbag so much better than in a dark lined handbag.
The faux "skin" looks so real. I really thought it was the real deal until I felt it~ It is a thick fabric, and beautifully done. The edge is looks like snake skin as well but is a leather or leather look- a- like vinyl. It is so real looking it is hard to tell if it is the real McCoy or not!
It is trimmed very nicely, and the handle is the same as the purse. The inside is such great quality, and you just don't find them like that today. The rich satin is decorated in gold trim at the pocket and there is also a zipper pocket as well. I would call this in pristine condition except for the tiny mark on the flap outside the purse.
Great endless style to the purse which has a latch that works perfectly securing the contents of the purse. The size is 11" wide by 8" deep and the handle extends the length by another 6".
This was purchased this in my favorite Couture shop that sells vintage Couture clothes, shoes and handbags. He only carries the best!
