Circa 50's WILARDY Lucite Luggage Style Handbag

This is a Lunch Box or Luggage Style Wilardy in a Lovely Pearlized Champagne color. It has two gold tone closures that are from the Presto Lock Company. It is rectangular in style and has a moveable handle. The inside is large and will hold all your goodies including any size Cell Phone.

Some History of the Wilardy Handbags - Wil Hardy joined his father's company named Handbag (Metal) Specialties. Toward the end of WWII he was able to get some damaged airplane noses that were made of lucite. During that time period leather and suede were in scarce supply so this was a perfect solution. He designed a lucite jewelry box and what is exciting is that he brought it to the buyers at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. They asked him to put a handle on it. They loved the result and the rest is history. He loved creating new designs. This is a design you do not see available much now some 65 years later.

Measurements - Length - 10. 5"

Width - 6"

Height - almost 6" without the handle, 9" with the handle

This handbag will hold any size Cell Phone you have plus all your other goodies.

GOOD Vintage Condition - This lovely does not have any cracks or odor. There are some light scratches on the bottom side, and very few tiny light ones throughout the body of the purse. If you look at it a certain way in the light you can see some very light clouding, but it is very hard to see. None of these foibles are a concern, since overall it presents as a Very Good Vintage Piece. It is Ready to Carry and Add to Your Collection.
