Black leather frame handbag 1950s 60s top handle purse

1950s Clothing




This midcentury classic, top-handle handbag in black leather dates from the late 1950s or early 1960s. The slightly textured surface of the black leather is somewhat shiny, with a lovely, smooth feel to it. The handbag has a bright gold-tone metal frame and hinged clasp that opens to reveal the black vinyl lining, with 1 slip and 1 zip pocket inside. The surface of the black leather has a few marks and scratches from normal use, but no other issues (see close-up photos). This stylish 1950s-60s handbag is in very good condition, with plenty of life and use left in it. Its larger size makes it practical for modern use: a phone and other essentials will fit, no problem!
