Koret has been a maker of many outstanding handbags since 1929 and through the years, the quality and styling has always been top notch. This sterling model is no exception. Made of luxurious Black Alligator embossed patent leather, it will leave no doubt from the moment you hold it. This very rare, early 1960’s Koret Kelly Evening Bag is a stunning, true collectible. An evening bag that that will top off your White gloved, formal event, it will bring many compliments with exquisite elegance. From a private collection, it was never carried and is absolutely pristine.
Upon holding this gorgeous Koret, the patent leather is soft, very soft and gleam with a brilliance not often seen on such a vintage handbag. Trimmed in butter-soft Black leather, the gussets are intact. It features the hidden pin snap under the flap. The flap is adorned with gleaming golden bar. Open the flap to see the spotless clean, brilliant Red, soft vinyl interior lined in a Bronze faille fabric. It opens in accordion style.
There is the slash slip pocket that is lined in Amber Faille fabric and it is spotless clean. Just below is the Koret Antelope stamped in golden letters. Just opposite is a zippered center security pocket. The main compartment is spacious, clean and it has a Black fabric-lined zippered security pocket as well. It is truly remarkable to see such a beautiful handbag intact.
The looping strap is supple and flawless. There is no wear or dull marks anywhere on this Koret and what appears as marks in the pictures are reflections. It is indeed, clean throughout. The strap attaches with two-tone posts that has screws for that elegance and quality that Koret is well known for. This is a very elegant Koret and it also very well made. You will be pleased when you see and hold this beautiful Koret. It is really just that nice.
This fine Koret measures 10 ½ “L x 7 ½ " H x 3 ½ " D and the strap affords a 7” drop.
This is a very nice Koret to display or carry. It is a genuine collectible.
