VINTAGE RED HANDBAG (UNUSUAL SHAPE)
|| for item HB247
This is one of the neatest vintage handbags in our inventory! As is the case with most of the vintage bags we have listed, this one is from my personal collection. Before I left the corporate world, I always carried a vintage bag (and brought my lunch in a vintage Scooby Doo metal lunchbox!). I purchased this purse many years ago at an antique show in Nashville, Tennessee. Other than a small amount of color wear to top corners, purse is in excellent condition inside and out. There is a mirror inside that has a little holder marked Palizzio, New York (the purse itself has no markings). There is also a small comb (original) and a black coin purse (I added). Inside was a business card from “Billings Beauty Shop, 2810 Granny White Rd, Nashville 4, Tenn”. The phone number was “Amherst 9-4559” and the shop was owned by “O.E. Billings, Prop.”. This little card was in the purse when I purchased and it just seemed right to leave it there.
