So cool, so funky, so wild! This handbag from the mid century was bought in T.W.Rounds, a popular Rhode Island luggage and leather shop. At one time the shop had 11 stores but closed its doors because of mall competition and consequences of 2001. The bag is on the small side and it is rectangular in shape with curves. The color is startling! It is a funky burnt orange color that can't be missed. The leather is soft and strong. The purse has ornamentation that is "out of sight." There are four rows of "neon" orange lucite squares that are connected to one another with bright silver rings. The squares are translucent. The rings connect both vertically and horizontally. Bright silver rings continue along the sides and the top and bottom of the bag. They connect to chains which extend onto the back and also continue to become two bright chain link handles. The drop is 6 1/2". The inside is lined with a black grosgrain fabric. There is one open slip pocket and a stick on tag stating "Made in Italy" is affixed inside. The inside is in wonderful condition essentially without signs of age or use. The bag comes in its original box which is has seen better days. The measurements of the bag are 7"w x 7"h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in great shape. There are a few cracks in the piping around the top of the bag. This is age related. I doubt it was ever used. This geometric and industrial style of bag was a common theme in the 60's. However, the color of this one and the creative use of the bright chains, put this bag in a class by itself. I can imagine this bag with that all black dress or with jeans. I can imagine my lady exiting a limousine with this handbag or sitting on the back of a motorcyle. Whether socialite or biker babe, the bag will excite and elicit smiles all around. Condition: Excellent- VINTAGE Condition
