Here we have a very sophisticated 1950s Mappin and Webb handbag.
It is in black leather with a snakeskin finish and very nice gold covered catch which works well.
The bag is in really good condition with only a few minor scuffs which you would expect from a vintage handbag – mainly the corners and some near the catch but these do not distract in any way from this lovely handbag.
The inside is fully lined in suede with individual places for your compact and your lipstick! This is very clean with none of the usual lippy or ink stains!
There is also a zipped pocket for keeping things safe such as your keys.
And for the modern woman plenty more room for your purse and mobile phone!
The bag would look great for day to day use or to go with a smart vintage outfit – especially with gloves – channel your inner Jackie O or Audrey!
Mappin and Webb are world renowned for their jewellery and silverware but also made luxury items like handbags. The Mappin and Webb logo is clearly seen inside the bag.
This 1950s Mappin and Webb handbag measures about 30cms wide and 17cms high. The handle measures 38cms from each clip to clip on the top of the handbag.
