A beautiful, one of a kind vintage handbag from the decadent 1930's. This gorgeous handbag has silver plated fittings and a central oval silver plated presentation plaque that reads

"PUKET LAWN TENNIS TOURNAMENT LADIES MIXED DOUBLES WON BY MRS GRAHAM 1931"

Having two abalone shell halves, each with silver plate collars and lovely silver plate hinge. Complete with kiss snap opener and original white metal link suspension chain. This is an absolutely one of a kind item which conjures in full the decadent 1920s and 30s period in the Colonial island of Phuket, off the Southern tip of Thailand. Phuket (also spelled Puket) has a rich past, it gained its wealth through the sourcing of rubber and tin. It was once part of the major trading route from India to China. It is now a popular tourist destination.

Size: Purse body approx 6" (15 cm) by 4" (10 cm), suspended 8.5" (21.5 cm)

Condition: Very good working condition. Minor wear to the plate and oxidization to the outer edge of the oval plaque. The white metal linked chain has age related dulling.

A fantastic vintage accessory for your cocktail party or unique gift for the hand bag collector or Tennis player...........
