A fantastic example of a 1950's lucite bag. This stunning bag is made by Tyrolean, USA and is tiger stripe lucite with gold tone hardware and enhanced further with filigree decoration to the lid. It has four gold tone ball feet. The original Tyrolean label is on the internal base of the bag. This is a wonderful example of 1950's glamour and these bags were known as 'Sculpture to Wear' and carried by the iconic figures of the day.
The lucite body is in excellent condition with some light surface scratches but these are minimal. There is no damage to the filigree. The gold tone hardware is in good condition with once again some surface scratches. The clasp is firm and secure. All ball feet are intact and in good condition. One of the handles has a small nick to the lucite. The mirror is silvered and has detatched although the glass is still in place.
