Gorgeous 1950s or 1960s rectangular lucite and woven gold metal handbag by Dorset Rex of New York. The epitome of mid century chic, this purse features a clear lucite arched handle with gold accents, a gray marbled top and bottom, and a basketweave goldtone metal body. The bag is fully lined and bears the Dorset Rex Fifth Avenue logo. Overall dimensions of the purse, excluding the handle, are 9 1/2" wide, 4" front to back, and 4" high. With the handle in the upright position, height increases 5" to 9" overall.
Condition is very, very good. We note one tiny speck of discoloration on the metal weaving which, if you look closely at the close-up photo of the front of the purse, you can barely see on the edge of the second row from the top. There is some discoloration to the edge of the lining which appears to be aging of the glue or fixative used. There is also some aging to the metal framing. All of this is to be expected but does not detract from the beauty and usability of this very pretty purse.
