Nice 1960s vintage taupe box bag by Essell.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Taupe was a 'big' colour in the 1930s, which enjoyed a revival during the later sixties and into the very early 70s, by which time it was used for coats, dresses and skirts as well as accessories...personally, I find a little goes long way - with this handbag, perhaps shoes and gloves to match, no more - but there's no denying its versatility and usefulness....
....as demonstrated by this sweet, and very sixties, box bag! Dress is up, dress it down, it will tone well with most colours, and protect your belongings with style and safety!
Used, but with no significant damage, lean and neat inside and out, there are literally years of use in this little number; and you'll never see another one like it! It has three internal pockets, one zipped, and its original mirror.
The marks on the inside are mainly due to age, I believe; those on the outside by use. I have tried to show the worst of it in the photos. The bag measures approximately 8 ½ inches by 6, by 4 ½ wide at the bottom (21.5 x 15.5 x 11.5 cms); handle strap measures 9 inches (23 cms) or thereabouts.
