Late 50s patent box bag.Please

Abslutely gorgeous, and practically perfect patent box bag from the last years of the 1950s is both practical and stunning: the perfect piece of vintage chic!
The tactile handle is smooth and opaque mock tortoiseshell, the bag is bound in brass and the whole just shines; which, of course, has made it difficult to photograph (I've tried - and sometime failed - to keep the reflection of the camera out of the pictures!)
Inside, the bag is clean and has no labels; there is one pocket at the side, mirror-sized, and plenty of room for all the accoutrements of the modern woman!
Although looking undeniably good for its age, there are two little faults I have found, to which I need to draw your attention; the first is a small discolouration in the brass on the front strip, just by the clasp......
....and the second is a small patch of dried glue(?) inside the bag and on the left as you look. Other than these, no major - or even minor - flaws that I can see.
The clasp is good and clunky still and the bag has years and years of use in it still!
Beautifully proportioned, it measures approximately 8 inches by 4 inches (20 x 10 cms) by 4 ¾ ins (12 cms) deep. If you would like more information, do contact us; we're happy to help!
