Vintage 1940's Fassbender Handbag


Fantastic post war 1940's box bag made by the highly collectable English brand Fassbender. Made from Tan Lizard skin and lined with chocolate Brown silk, finished with gilt hardware, it comes complete with its original mirror. The original "pull" on the front of the bag is perfect and the bag opens to reveal one zipped compartment, and two internal pockets, one small one large. Considered a luxury brand in their heyday, Fassbender bags are now part of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London's permeant fashion collection. The bag measures 24cm across by 12.5cm high and is 7cm deep. Marked: Fassbender, Made in England.
