Some History of the Wilardy Handbags:

Wil Hardy joined his father's company named Handbag (Metal) Specialities. 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 he brought it to the buyers at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. They loved it and asked him to add a handle and the rest is History.

Measurements - Length - 9"

Width - 4 7/8"

Height - 4 7/8" without the handle, 10 7/8" with the handle

The Size of this Handbag will easily hold any size Cell Phone and your other necessaries.

GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION - This is a lovely handbag in really good vintage condition! There are no cracks, odor, and only light scratches on the bottom of the bag. The handle has a lot of wear, or say we say age appropriate patina (see photograph 7&8). It does blend in nicely though because of the colors of the handbag. There is a tiny slightly white spot on the right top corner (see the last photograph), very unnoticeable.

This item is sold from a vintage boutique in Birmingham, AL.
