This is an absolutely stunning vintage Elbief from England Black Patent leather clutch evening bag. Made for Jacobson’s, this mint kiss-snap purse was never carried and looks and feels new. The patent leather still has that "feel" from very meticulous care. This is not a vinyl or plastic handbag, this is genuine Patent Leather. It was made with the famous Elbief frame in solid brass that gleams as the day it was made. From a private collection, this convertible clutch is pristine.
It features a removable strap with leash clips and hoops are cleverly hidden to carry this fine purse as a clutch without cluttering the design. Inside, it is lined in flawless tan suede with a single Ace zippered security pocket. Below is the original tag. There are no cracks in the gussets. It rests on a gently convex bottom.
On the front there is a strip of genuine black snakeskin and it is supple. This purse dates from the early 1960's and has no dull marks on the body. It is indeed fabulous and is the perfect accessory for a night at the theatre, any formal event, or a night out, it is just a superb handbag and you will smile when you see and receive the compliments and looks. It is that nice and it truly looks good all over.
The dimensions are 10" L x 6 1/4" H x 2 1/4" D and the strap is 36" long.
