This is a Granada USA Patent Formal Evening Bag that exudes elegance and class from every angle. Made by Granada Handbags from NYC in the late 1950’s, a subsidiary of the renown Classy Handbag Corporation also in NYC, Granada handbags were the top of the line. This fabulous Kelly is in pristine condition.
The first thing you will notice is the gleaming Black Patent. It is like a Black mirror throughout. Seldom do you ever see a Patent of this vintage in such splendid condition.
Nowhere does this Granada look like a handbag approaching sixty-years-old as it looks as fresh as today. It is a testament to the meticulous care it received through the decades and that this is a special occasion, formal Evening Bag. Worn with gloves, it will be the crowning touch to your attire.
Lift the oversized buckle to see the two, Black faille lined compartments with the zippered pocket as a center divider. In accordion style, it opens wide for easy access and can hold the largest smartphone with ease and your wallet. It is flawless inside and smells as fresh as the day it was made. Pull the solid brass Swift zipper and that pocket is flawless and clean as well.
Outside, the Patent is simply remarkable all over. There are no dull spots anywhere. The handle is even in color and the solid brass stays shines like a golden mirror. Even the pin snap is intact indicating that it was opened and closed with care. The bottom is also pristine as this is not an Evening Bag to set on ill-suited places and it should rest in a cotton dustcover when not worn.
This Granada is a Regal handbag of museum quality and is perfect to display and for special events. The many looks and compliments you will receive will make you smile.
The dimensions are 8” L x 6 ¼ “H 3” D and the handle has the formal drop of 4 ½ inches, perfect to arm carry.
As always, this fine Granada 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.
