Yearning for Miami in its heyday of the 1950's-'60's. This vintage handbag by Stylecraft Miami will take you there. Designed by a company whose specialized in Lucite bags, Stylecraft Miami also produced bags with a variety of styles and materials. This bag is a bit unusual for Stylecraft since it uses plastics in a different manner than most other bags. It is medium sized and is flexible, not rigid. It is a variation of the Kelly bag. It is designed with small plastic round milk chocolate brown beads that are sewn onto what appears to be a brown knit background fabric. The beads are neatly sewn in methodical lines. Interspersed are large abstract accents. These accents appear to be multi layered with gold metallic thread sewn in a stylized manner onto the knit material and on top are clear small round beads sewn in a diamond pattern. These accents are large and designed in rows. They are most interesting and provide a surprising glamour to the bag. The frame is a shiny gold tone metal. It has a scalloped band running across the front and the back. This band is trimmed in shiny gold tone and has a honey amber strip on top of it. The Lucite strip is not flat against the frame and has a wave like appearance. This provides depth and dimension. The bag opens and closes with a thick honey toned marbleized amber clasp that lifts up. There is a thick rolled carry strap that is made of the brown beads. It has a drop of 6". The inside is lined with a peach colored grosgrain fabric. There is a zippered slip pocket and an open one. The cloth label "Made in Hong Kong for Stylecraft Miami" is sewn inside. The interior is in great condition without any signs of wear or age. The measurements of the bag are 11"w x 7"h x 2 1/2"d. The bag is in wonderful condition. There a few missing clear beads on one accent towards the back bottom of the bag. This is so minor that you have to look hard to see it. This handbag is versatile yet different. Match it with a halter style top and a floral appliqued full and flared skirt . Accessorize with single color classy pumps and glitzy thermoset jewelry and to complete the look, wear this retro handbag on your wrist. So Madmen! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
