Koret Double Bubbles Handbag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This unusual black leather handbag has an almost cartoon-like design. It looks like two overlapping bubbles with a shiny highlight on the edge of the front bubble. The kiss lock clasps are two tone with silver and gold plating. Though the bag appears to have two sections, the clasps work in conjunction to access the single interior. It is lined with black satin and has two small open top slit pockets. The height is 6.63", and is 13.25" to the top of the handle.
