B Altmann & Co, Bonwit Teller and Lord & Taylor. Keenly sought by handbag collectors, Rosenberg products are still as fashionable today as they were when they were first sold.

     

    Comment

    The handbag is in excellent condition with a clean exterior and interior. ...looks hardly carried if at all. There are a few very minor scratches and age spots but nothing to detract from this beautiful handbag.

    Comment

    This fantastic bag is in great condition considering its age. There are some small variations in the colour and texture of the leather, some tiny flecks of enamel missing in a few spots on the metal bar, and a few small black "age" marks here and there.  No strong odours (other than some conditioner to feed the leather. All in all, a great doctor's or overnight bag.

    The petite purse is in excellent condition for its age with a clean interior, perhaps a minor stray thread here or there, nothing structural.  A wonderful example of a rare and collectable item with a gorgeous crochet pattern.

    Comment

    This handbag is in excellent condition for its age without any missing jewels or paint loss. The only issue of note is that there is the slightest darkening of corners. The lining inside is clean and without any damage, although probably  not as bright as it was originally. All in all, a beautiful and well-preserved handbag.

    *  Vintage 1950s white milk glass and clear crystal beaded purse

    * Black looped eyebrows and colourful beaded nose and eyes

    * Metal zipper opens to reveal satin interior

    * Made by Walborg

    Walborg Company was founded by Hilde Weinberg in New York City in the late 1940s. She designed purses that were handmade in Belgium, France, Italy, and West Germany. One of the rarest of the Walborg products is a figural handbag made in the shape of a poodle. The poodle came in two sizes: 14 inch and 9 inch versions and two colours, black or white. Poodles were a popular fashion accessory in the 1950s because of the influence of Parisienne fashions. These poodle purses are highly sought after by collectors today.

     

    Comment

    The petite purse is absolutely gorgeous. Whilst it presents beautifully it nevertheless displays normal wear for its age as it has been used. The only blemishes of note are that the pull tab on the zipper has broken in half, but still works, and the interior lining is discoloured from use. The rarity of the piece makes these minor issues insignificant overall.

    The Lederer company opened their first boutique in the US around 1939 in New York City at 711 Fifth Ave. Prior to that, the company operated over twenty stores in Europe: including London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and Budapest. Their specialties were upscaled alligator and crocodile satchels, as well as various exotic skins all meticulously handcrafted and finished. A signature feature of their finest model was an attached gold plated pocket watch. Since the 1960s, this over-100-year-old corporation has been run by the three generations of Mr. Lederer’s followers. The brand has changed ownership several times, yet still remains in operation worldwide as a distinguished maker of very fine leather goods.

    Comment

    The handbag is in excellent condition for its age with a clean interior - no rips, tears or bad smells. Minute inspection reveals a very small amount of tarnish to metal hardware, light rubs to the skin on the body, some cracks to leather handle, very slight amount of wear internally. These small issues are really not noticeable when in use, the bag presents as well kept, clean and free from noticeable blemishes. All in all, a very unusual and striking handbag.

    The handbag is in excellent condition with a clean interior. Minor scratches to metal hardware and a couple of kinks to carrying strap.  These are very minor faults and greatly outweighed by the wonderful trapeze shape.

Minute inspection reveals a very small amount of tarnish to metal hardware, light rubs to the skin on the body, very slight amount of wear internally. These small issues are really not noticeable when in use, the bag presents as well kept, clean and free from noticeable blemishes.

    Comment

    This striking purse is in excellent condition for its age with a clean interior.  Perhaps the shape is not as precise as it was originally but does not detract from the presentation as can be seen. A wonderful example of a whimsical handbag so popular in the 1950s and 60s.

    Comment

    The handbag is in very good condition with a clean interior. Small amount of tarnish to metal hardware, some wear to the skin on the body, along with some cracks to skin at the carrying strap. These are cosmetic only and do not affect the strength of the handle, and could be professionally glued or stitched if required. These minor faults are outweighed by the rarity of the skin colour and the wonderful Kelly shape.

    Comment

    The fun handbag is a stand-out!! While on show at one of the fairs I attend, the bag unfortunately suffered a mishap of some sort and I belatedly noticed a break in the vinyl backing on one side that has detached a small metal ring. The break is small but nevertheless it is not in the same condition as when it was first listed. It remains a gorgeous handbag but, due to the mishap I have reduced the price significantly.   Should you want a more close-up photo of the damage let me know.
