1950's Patent leather purse

This 1950's black patent leather clutch is another amazing find.  I'm normally not a huge patent leather fan.  Usually, it reminds me of Mary Jane shoes that I had to wear as a child. The classic shape of this bag along with the large tortoise shell lucite handle and gold trimmings made me a fan though.  I love all things tortoise shell!  And look at the inside of the bag...just amazing.  It has a black and white floral pattern lining that is in amazing condition.  I definitely didn't imagine to see such a fun print with I first popped it open!  With a deep inside space, two large side pockets, and a zippered side pouch there is more than enough room for the essentials.  Check it out today in the Etsy shop!
