Mrs. Hilde Walborg designed handbags and accessories that even today, they are highly coveted. However, this is one of her most unique and very rare. This pearlescent Mother of Pearl Lucite and White Wicker is a handmade treasure from Hong Kong. It is from a private collection and in excellent condition.
From the late 1950's, it is stunning. Each of these high-end models took quite a bit of time to complete. None were alike. The Lucite is remarkable and seldom do you ever see a Lucite/Wicker bag in this condition anywhere. The effect is pure glamour and you will know right away that this is not just a plain evening bag.
You can see the painstaking work which is a hallmark of these rare handmade Walborg’s from Hong Kong. The White is brilliant and full as is the trim and Lucite. When you twist the turn lock to open and you are greeted to genuine Crème vinyl lining. There is a zippered security pocket and a slip pocket directly across. It is clean and odor-free inside with just a couple of faint marks near the label that is insignificant and of no issue. The beautiful Lucite is smooth and clean and leaves no doubt. The solid brass metalwork is full of color and has no fading. The beautifully designed handle is tight, as it should be with no wear.
Outside, the wicker is perfectly woven with no loose strands. The quality is evident throughout and the fit is true. This Walborg rests on four brass feet. The frame is straight and closes as it should.
This is a Walborg that will make an outstanding presentation and it is a rare, investment grade Walborg that will continue to climb in value. You will not find another.
The dimensions are: 8"L x 7"H x 4" D and the handle affords a 2.5" drop.
