This handbag is a little different from the more typical Tano handbags of the mid century. The Tano brand was started in the 1930's by Sebastian Giner. His handbags were made in Spain and they became an instant success. Their bags were high quality and there was a "look" about them. This bag is different since it is more typical of a dressy bag from other mid century designers. It is medium size and can fit all of today's necessities. It is slightly wider at the bottom than at the top. There is ruching at the top.
It is made from a soft high quality suede that is very durable. It is a suede that is a pleasure to touch. The color is a bit lighter than a deep dark chocolate brown. There is beading on the front of the bag. Small jet black beads form rows of large paisley shapes. Each shape measures 2"h x 1" and there are 21 of them. The beading shines and shimmers in a very subtle manner. The frame is gold tone with a two decorative gold rods and black enameling in between. There is a tear shape pull tab that has the decorative gold work and the black enameling. There is a carry strap made of the suede fabric. The drop is 6 1/2".
The inside is lined with a black satiny fabric. There is an open slip pocket trimmed in gold and a "Tano Made in Spain" is printed in gold . There is gold lace trim around the top of the bag. All this are indications of a high end bag. The inside is in great condition. The measurements of the bag are 9 1/2"w x 7"h x 1"d. The bag is in wonderful condition. There are the some minor signs of wear and age (tarnish on the underside of the tab). I don't think the bag was used often.
A smart and sophisticated bag that can be dressed up or down. A versatile and timeless handbag with just enough glitz! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
