This is a lovely vintage handbag patented in 1953! This is a "rigid" reversible handbag -- one purse with alternate panels -- two looks in one purse!
The outer panel can be reversed (black vinyl on one side, beautiful tapestry on the other) or removed completely to show a basic black handbag! It has a clear lucite handle.
I have seen several of these rigid reversible purses (I actually have two in my listed inventory) but this one has the prettiest tapestry type panel I've seen. Purse was made by L and M but only
the "L" and Made in U.S.A. with patent number are legible.
Purse is in excellent condition -- has a couple tiny pits on top frame -- that's it! Very nice addition to a vintage handbag collection!
