This little black handbag with its heart-shaped kiss clasp is so very sweet! It can be used as an evening bag or as a daytime accessory, and like so many black accessories, it goes with everything. This 1950’s bag is shaped like an unstructured satchel but in a very small size. One of the photos shows the purse next to a one-pound coffee bag to give perspective on the size. The material is black corde with a fabric-covered hinge opening and a heart-shaped kiss clasp. The lining is light rose colored and has no pockets.
The handbag measures 5 inches high and 6 inches wide, and the handle has a 5 inch drop. The oval-shaped bottom is 2 ½ by 5 inches. The fabric covering the hinged frame was left unhemmed at the hinge, so it does look unfinished. There is also a tiny place the fabric has come undone from the frame, and there are some light marks on the heart. The handbag is in otherwise great vintage condition with no holes, stains, or scents. This is a great little handbag, perfect for those times when you don’t want to haul a lot of stuff around. And it is darling. No doubt about it!
