We simply adore Lucite handbags and this fantastic vintage marbled gray Wilardy piece is no exception!
Established in 1946, Wilardy provided the elite, aristocratic crowds of Paris, London, Miami and Hollywood with the finest, most unique Lucite handbags.
Interest in the Wilardy brand has been revived in recent years and this vintage box-purse is a highly-collectible example of their charming and endearing style.
As you can see, this nicely-sized purse is made of lustrous marbled gray Lucite.
The clasp, sides, and handle feature a slightly darker gray finish which creates the perfect, subtle complement to the shimmery dove-gray of the rest.
The tall, rounded handle is attached to the lid with two small silvertone components.
You can see that the Lucite rocker clasp is accented with a big silver tone medallion. The medallion has a classic look with stamped scrolls and florals.
The lid opens on a hinge that spans the length of the back.
You will find a stamped mark on the hinge which reads "Wilardy".
PLEASE NOTE that this piece has some condition issues which include a light scuff on the front and a small crack on the back.
This has been priced considering the crack.
The crack is not affecting the structural integrity of the piece.
Despite the wear and darkening to some areas of the interior and a few light scratches here and there, this piece remains in good vintage condition overall.
Lucite box purses are a great retro accessory for the summer or winter. We know you'll love this one.
