1950's Dorset Rex Cage Bag with Lucite and Faux Leopard. Large Scale.

About

Fantastic 1950's Dorset Rex handbag with furry faux leopard strips weaving through a gilt metal cage frame. Shiny chocolate brown lucite top and bottom. Graceful honey colored lucite handle. Leather and gilt clasp. Lined in silky peach satin. This large scale bag totally channels the 1950's pin-up vibe but in quite a classic and understated way. Think Grace Kelly meets Marilyn Monroe! Labelled: Dorset Rex Fifth Avenue plus retains it's original card. Excellent, unused condition aside from a tiny area of light wrinkling on the leather clasp shown in photo 4. A few age related marks on the very top of the left hand side of the interior shown in photo 7. Size: 11 inches wide on the top tapering to 9.5 inches on the bottom. 10 inches tall including the handle. Width is 5.75 inches at it's widest. This is an amazing original 1950's bag which is as much fun to wear as it is to display in a vintage boudoir!
