Rhinestone Embellished Lucite Box Handbag, 1950’s



Perfect for a modern day Cinderella! This classic 1950's lucite handbag has a rectangular form with a hinged rhinestone embellished lid and double handles that separate for easy access. Fashionable ladies in the 1950's used colorful scarves to hide their contents and change the look of the handbag depending on the occasion. These were also known as portable jewel boxes and would be lovely displayed on a vanity with sparkles inside. Though unmarked, many of the 1950's lucite handbags were manufactured by Floridian designers such as Charles Kahn or Patricia of Miami. CONDITION Very good condition with a subtle nick to the surface on one side shown in photograph 15 and a couple of small scratches nearby as shown in photograph 16. In addition, the hinged lid is spring loaded and makes a creaking sound when being opened and closed. MEASUREMENTS The body of the handbag measures 9" wide x 3.75" tall x 4" deep. Each of the double handle measures 17.5" from end to end providing a 7" drop.
