A genuine gray leather hard-frame handbag with brass hardware and unique handle. Outside, the bag features a compact hard frame and brass hardware. A snap closure opens to a central open compartment fully lined in black satin and one open pocket. The purse measures 8" across, 4" deep, and 10 1/2" high. The handle has a 4 3/4" drop to the top of the bag and an internal depth of 5". Inside, the bag is unmarked and the condition of the purse is good with only small areas of age and use.
Caring for A Leather Handbag
- A general maintenance cleaning involves mixing a small amount of mild liquid dish soap (a couple drops in 8 ounces of water) with warm water and a soft microfiber cloth. Ring out the cloth and wipe the purse following the grain of the leather and finish with a final wipe with a new clean damp cloth. Always spot test a small area before cleaning. Do not use saddle soap, bleach, vinegar, or ammonia. Any specialty cleaners should match the type of handbag material. For example, a leather bag cleaner will not be as effective on suede as much as a specialty suede cleaner would be.
- Keep bag stuffed while not using it to maintain shape, and store in a dust bag or old pillow case.
- To remove musty odors, place an open box of baking soda inside the bag and wrap in a pillowcase overnight.
- Beeswax can be used to lubricate zippers for a smoother glide.
