C00138: Marbett Creations Dark Navy leather handbag ca 1950

What Fun! A stunning Marbett Creations Dark Navy leather handbag ca 1950 in a nifty triangular shape! The 3-part corded design is identical front and back. The Chunky gold kiss lock opens to a spotless navy faille interior with one open and one metal zip pocket. The leather is supple and beautiful, with very slight wear to the bottom corners the only, very minor shortcoming. Measures 8 x 3 1/4 x 8 1/4".

The bag sold for $75 at The Bag Lady Emporium.
