Sparkling light filled lucite is shown off to its best in this 1950s CHARLES KAHN Cross Hatched Carved Clear Acrylic Lucite Hard Body Plastic Purse Handbag. 8" wide by 4" deep by 4" tall with an additional 5" tall single wristlet style pivoting handle, this purse is clean lined, simple and iconically reflective of this unusual period when acrylic and acetate hard bodied purses were all the rage in fashion. Collectible since the late 1980s and the subject of many books and museum exhibitions, my collections have been featured in many of the books as has my expertise on the subject. Clear carved unadorned simple elegant lucite. In its purest, most light filled and transparent wonder! Excellent vintage condition. Charles Kahn label intact. 3 ball white metal locking clasp is original, present and functions perfectly. THE classic lucite purse...plain and simple.
