This handbag’s material, “Pleather” has a very unique characteristic. It looks and feels like high quality leather but if pressed or creased from an object, it will return to its form untouched. So the creases in the pictures no longer exist. This handbag is fabulous. Flip the fabulous fifties "Bar snap" and be greeted with a clean Tan vinyl lining that looks and feels like leather. The solid brass S & H zipper is intact and closes the single pocket. Inside the pocket is also spotless clean. The name badge has long fallen but from the outstanding quality of this handbag, it is more than likely one of the finer brands of the time.
The Ideal made frame is clean with no tarnishing or dents. The folds are smooth with no cracks. It closes with that familiar Thoomph. The entire body of this fine valise is smooth and clean. No scratches or wear on the bottom. This purse was exceptionally very well cared for and it shows.
High on the top of this fine valise, the straps are uniquely placed within each other. The purpose of this was to allow you to hold onto one strap and to open the satchel without tangling the handles. It is also the reason for the slight cant made into the design so it will lay close to you when open. A very clever design indeed.
All of the brass stays are clean. This is simply an outstanding handbag that will surely bring compliments.
It is a MASSIVE, very large purse. A full 13" L x 8" H x 5" D and the strap affords a drop of 6" and can be shoulder carried when needed.
As always, this fine valise will come to you shipped with the utmost care via USPS Priority Mail or your choice of shippers indicated with insurance. Never a handling charge, just the exact shipping to your zip code. I ship all over the world and will gladly combine shipping on multiple purchases.
