This oversized baguette bag screams "Vintage 1940"s. This type of bag is often seen in film noir movies with the actress holding it under her shoulder. What was fitting for then, remains suitable for today since its size enables storage for many items. It is very long and narrow. It is made from a very soft and buttery black leather. The shape is rectangular, yet the upper corners are pointed and protrude upwards. There is a faux "flap" but it is decorative and does not lift. However, there is ruching around this semi circle accent and soft folds are the result. The "flap" is bordered with a thick ribbed trim giving the bag depth and dimension.The back does not have this accent and is flat black leather. The gussets at the sides are also covered with this ribbed fabric and this provides additional interest to the bag. But it is not over yet! There is a gold tone frame that really cannot be seen. The inside of the frame is engraved with a geometric pattern, a sign of a higher end bag. The bag closes with a ball clasp. Two large lucite faux crystals resembling "bullets" or "rockets" surround the closure. They are multi faceted and are very slick and modern looking. Gold tone hardware accentuate their appearance. They measure 2 3/4"long. The inside is lined with a black fabric. There is a zippered pocket and an open pocket and a small coin purse is attached inside. The word "Genuine Leather" is printed in gold letters inside. The inside is in wonderful condition looking as though it was never used. The measurements are 14"w x 6"h x 1"d. The bag has been loved but remains in great shape. There is a little tarnish on the inside of the frame and some faint signs of use on the leather. Nothing significant and to be expected for a bag this age. This is a great retro vintage bag. A definite statement maker. The "real deal." Condition: Excellent- VINTAGE Condition
