Absolutely fabulous box bag from the 1940s or 1950s.
Labelled Lin Bren, the bag is made from metal which has been covered in black fabric with a gold metal design woven through it. The bag has two compartments. The smaller compartment is a cigarette case and has a mirror, the larger compartment has a little coin purse and enough space for a lipstick and powder compact and keys. A beautiful, yet functional, piece which works well for day or evening wear.
Excluding the handle the bag is 4.5" tall, 3.5" wide and 2.25" deep
The exterior is in great condition with only minor tarnish on the sliding clasps and all the metal work - see photos. The interior has some tarnish on the metal, which isn't unexpected on a piece this old.
