About

Mid Century Florida Handbag in the palest pink with “Gilt sparkles” in diagonals, within the Lace, set to Lucite, and a Carved, Diamond Leaf Carved, clear Lucite Lid and horseshoe shaped swing handle on perfect bronze domed posts, with bronze pins to the handle sides. The rear has the strong, original silver plated brass Piano Hinge to be less visible, and the front, a solid bronze hinged clasp with twist locking to tab, all in matching, aged bronze. All parts are in perfect working order and the original Label sticker is still on the inner bag, below hinge, and reads “Florida Handbags” in black script print, with “Made in Florida” below, also in black, all on a clear background. The base is in original finish with clear studs at corners to prevent scratching to the base, which is unmarked, but has, “as made”, external “puddle” light surface depressions that look like irregular drops of water; a very rare finish, never seen on any of these bags over many years. All in the original, aged patina, with no damage or repairs to mention at all. Florida, U.S.A.. Circa 1950’s.
