So chic, so modern, but this 1950s handbag is beautifully vintage. It's a padded crepe rectangle with an envelope flap front and exquisite hand-sewn embroidery, in ombre hues of burnt orange, blue, and greens. A gorgeous evening purse with fine detail.

Condition Detail
Looks and feels pristine, probably never carried; the metal zipper inside looks bright as new, and has no visible flaws but is sticky, though hesitantly functional
