If you want huge, this is the bag for you. It is an oversized handbag by Glenn Miller for Ann Turk. During the 1980's Glenn Miller designed handbags for his mother Ann Turk. They were high styled and often were leather or embossed crocodile or
alligator frequently designed with figural or ornate metal clasps. They were sold in luxury stores and the company folded when Ann Turk died at an early age. This handbag is a rich deep and rich brown with a lot of red in it ( cordovan like).
It is embossed alligator and the faux scales are very detailed with many of them being on the larger size. The bag is very hard cased. It has a sculptural shape that is unusual since there are "wings" at its sides. The frame is covered with the leather and is more blackish as our the carry handles. There is a very ornate silver tone filigree clasp that comes from behind. This clasp is very large and very detailed with scrolls and flowers. It is lifted upwards and clicks when pushed downwards. There are two long faux crocodile leather straps to carry the bag. The drop is 15" to the top of the frame. These straps end in decorative accents that resemble the shape of leaves. The inside is lined with a black grosgrain and there is an open slip pocket. The sewn in label stating "Glenn Miller for Ann Turk Made in USA" is affixed inside the bag. The inside is in great condition with the most minimal signs of wear and age. The measurements are 11 1/2 w ( at its widest) x 12" h (including the clasp) x 2 1/2"d. This handbag is in wonderful condition. There is a small bit of wear on the trim by the corners of the "wings". This bag supposedly sold for $1200. I am not surprised at this amount since just first glance confirms the quality and craftsmanship of the bag. Could be an everyday bag or a bag to wear to most dress up occasions. Even going out to dinner when one doesn't want to carry their huge daily bag, this bag would be suited for that occasion. And all of our "necessities" including our phone fit inside. It is dynamite looking and is vintage at its best! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
