Rare midcentury creation by legendary handbag designer Martin van Schaak, known for his one-of-a-kind custom purses for exclusive clientele.

Details:
Ivory white structured handbag with hinge frame.
Ocean-themed ornament on front: pearlescent nautilus shell framed by gold-plated coral, holding faux pearls and faux coral.
Three compartments: two sides are open, and central has bronze-tone clasp closure.
Central compartment has zip pocket and gold printing: "Martin Van Schaak, New York".
Single flat strap with pin buckle, adjusting strap length to either wrist strap or shoulder strap.
Retro elegance meets functionality!

Measurements:
8.25" L x 6.5" W x 3.5" D
Strap drop: 6" / 12"

Condition:
Bag has been cleaned, leather conditioned, and edge paint retouched. Wear consistent with age and use. All hardware functional and metal polished. No odors. Bag was improperly stored, causing buckle on strap to become misshapen and snap on one corner, and to ripple parts of strap; buckle has been repaired and reshaped so it can slide correctly on strap, and strap has been repaired and repainted. Minor ink marks on interior. Exterior stitching missing in some spots, but seams remain intact. Some faux pearls missing on coral. Overall, bag is fully functional and very attractive - still a work of art! See all photos.
