Vintage Silver Glomesh Handbag in original box
Vintage 1980s Glomesh Handbag in original box
Beautiful rectangular shaped Glomesh Australia silver metal mesh fold over evening purse with long snake chain shoulder strap which can be tucked inside for an elegant clutch. In its original box with purchase record- bought at Waltons in Bankstown 21st November, 1983. Probably just in time for the Xmas party season!! Or perhaps a zealous husband getting in early with the wife's Xmas present. It is impossibly shiny and eye catching! and so slinky and slippery and heavy. Quality bag made by a very famous Australian bag manufacturer who is still going strong.
In very good vintage condition - Very shiny and completely intact. The surface has a kind of pale goldish patina on the silver from age. The interior is lined in a plush pale grey fabric which is very clean with a slight yellowing around the edges from age. It is nice and roomy with a side pocket. Magnetic clasp. Slight patina on the metal wear holding the metal shoulder strap.
10" (25cm) X 5" (13cm) X 1 3/4" (4.5cm)
