This 1960’s handbag is in its brilliant red color is the perfect retro accessory. The purse is a structured baguette style with a decorative gold-tone frame with inset with red. A hinged opening with a rocking latch lifts to reveal a black corde lining with one metal zippered pocket. The handbag is covered in a soft material introduced in the Sixties as marshmallow vinyl. The bottom of the bag has four protective feet, and the handle is soft marshmallow vinyl.
The handbag measures 12 by 6 inches and is 4 inches across the bottom, and the handle has a 5 ½ inch drop. There are a few light scratches, two tiny “bites” out of the marshmallow handle, and flaking of the gold-tone finish of the frame. The bag is otherwise in excellent vintage condition with tight stitching and no stains, rips, or scents. This is a great looking 1960’s handbag. Bright, cheerful, and most of all, red!
