Don't be fooled by this great-looking, classy Lucite handbag. It surely had its Lincoln Road shopping days and wild mambo dancing club nights. These 'Made in Miami Florida Handbags' had all the fun back in the 1950s/60s.
Keep the tradition going (it doesn't have to be the mambo). This vintage Lucite handbag is still the rage with its classic rectangular boxy shape.
The body of the bag is pearlized white. The top and handle are carved and clear through. The hardware latch is gilded silver-tone with some expected wear to the gilt. We haven't polished it up.
The bag measures 8 1/4 by 4 inches across the top. It's 4 inches high to the lid with another 4 1/2 inches of handle. The inside is marked FLORIDA HANDBAGS - MADE IN MIAMI. The bottom has 4 Lucite dome 'feet' to protect it. There's very slight wear at bottom with one tiny yellow spot that looks like a manufacturing blip.
Overall, this elegant, tasteful little number is in excellent vintage condition. But, remember...it has a wild side when it hears a mambo.
