Myles Marbled Double Curved Deco Sculptured Lucite Purse:
Pleased to offer this vintage 1950's Myles brown/gold marbled lucite purse in a fabulous Deco double curved front & back sculptured design!Curves everywhere! From the wavy curved handle to the wavy, curved top of purse then down to the long curved front and back design! Heck, even the clasp is wavy and curved! I'd love to know who sketched the design on this one! If the detailing isn't amazing enough - the pattern in the lucite is quite remarkable - semi-translucent - this is a complex marbled pattern known as "lamoplex" which was a new plastic Myles came out with in 1951. This new material was advertised as being lightweight, nonbreakable and would not crack or warp. Striking color patterns were achieved by laminating metallic material between sheets of plexiglass. The actual shade of this purse is darker than what shows in pics - more of a medium/darker brown to reddish brown mixed with the gold. Quite breathtaking! Purse measures 7" width (across top), 6" height and 3 - 4" depth.Very good condition. Exterior lucite looks good - few light scuffs and tiny factory indentation at base (can barely see). Hardware and inside hinge could use cleaning. The gold grosgrain interior is very worn - center pocket split across top - and has staining (see pics). No other flaws - clasp works good.
