From the fabulous Dorset Rex company comes this sweet boxed-look vintage handbag in the traditional silver and gold-tone basket-woven body and marbled gray Lucite top.
Fabulous criss-crossed strips of gold and silver-tone metals create a fantastic basket weave on the exterior, complementing the silvery-gray lid perfectly.
A clear Lucite handle adorns the top while a silver tone hook and loop component keeps the lid securely in place.
Inside, you will find that the handbag is completely lined with divine peach-colored satin.
A small pocket is perfect for holding cards, cash and compacts.
The original manufacturer's label is stitched to the interior and reads "Dorset-Rex Fifth Avenue".
A stamped mark can be found on the underside of the handbag and reads "S PAT 2486831", though it is slightly worn.
Both interior and exterior show some minor wear.
A few teeny spots can be seen on the lining while the exterior shows only one or two minor scratches.
Overall, this gorgeous, highly-collectible handbag remains in excellent vintage condition.
The contrast of the woven metals against silvery-gray top and crystal-clear Lucite handle make a wonderful, unique look.
This beauty is a real must-have for the collector in-the-know.
