Ready to swing to the music of the Glenn Miller band? The swing era was during the 1940's when the American public took to listening and dancing to big band music. This handbag by Ingber would be perfect on the wrist of a female patron as she entered the ballroom ready to "swing" (dance). The bag was created by Ingber a company that created bags that reflected the times and the needs of the women wearing these items. This bag is box shape and it is covered with a plush and soft velvet. It is slightly ruched at the top and bottom on both the front and the back. This results in soft and gentle pleating throughout. However, it is the large floral decoration that is the focal point of the bag. The floral sprig is fuchsia colored which is striking, dramatic and bright. The attachment is huge and covers most of the front of the bag. The fuchsia cut velvet leaves are flat against the bag while the floral buds extend significantly outward. These rose buds consist of tightly wrapped petals and stamens made of black beads. Dimension and depth is created. The visual appearance is just gorgeous and very retro. There is a yellow gold thick frame that extends downwards on the sides. There is a large stylistic push up tab to open the bag. A velvet carry strap is attached with chunky shiny gold hardware. The inside is lined with a salmon colored satiny fabric and there is an open slip pocket (bordered in gold thread)and a zippered pocket. The Ingber identification is somewhat faded but still can be seen. The inside is in wonderful condition with some normal expected signs of wear and age. The measurement of the bag are 7 1/2"w x 5 1/2"h x 2 1/2"d. The bag is in great condition with the velvet being in wonderful condition especially considering its age. There are age spots especially at the corners and the frame does show age. All in all, still in excellent VINTAGE condition. This bag is vintage at its best. Wonderful to look at ......takes one back to an age when the world was so...o.....o.....different from the likes of today! Condition: Excellent- - VINTAGE Condition
