This classic 1950s clear Lucite and woven metal box purse was made by Majestic Metal Specialties, 5th Avenue, New York City. Top and handle are clear Lucite and box purse features shiny gold tone and brushed silver tone woven metal strips that contrast beautifully for an elegant presentation. Interior is a gold satin fabric.
Measurements: Top is 8 inches wide by 4 3/4 inches. Base is 6 3/4 inches by 3 7/8 inches. Purse is 5 1/4 inches high. Holding handle upright adds another 4 1/2 inches.
Condition: Lucite top and handle are near excellent. Some light and very fine scratches are only evident when holding under strong lighting. Otherwise, it looks perfect. Silver strips show some signs of use and marks, but because of the shiny nature of the metal, they are not easily noticed. Interior has a few small marks; but, overall, in beautiful condition and smells great. No smoke or unpleasant odors. Clasp on the front works exactly as it should and snaps closed nicely.
Marks: Bottom of interior fabric has the Majestic name with logo. Metal banding on the interior of purse is marked "Majestic Pat. Pend.".
