This is a beautiful vintage black leather handbag by Wm. H. Block. It was made in Italy. The purse is heavy black leather on the outside and red kidskin leather on the lining. The hardware is gold tone metal. The purse is 10 1/2" x 7" x 3." The handle has a drop of 5." The label inside reads "Made in Italy Expressly for the Wm. H. Block." It is in excellent condition, I do not see any flaws. This shape was popular in the 1950s-60s. I believe it was made in Florence, Italy.
