Vintage Lucite Bakelite Clutch Handbag Purse By Ilene Rhinetone Bee Pattern For Sale
Purse measures 4x7x2 inches. It's made of a hard plastic type material that I believe is Lucite or Bakelite due to the age. It's a brown tortoise shell pattern as well. The design on the front are etched bees with rhinestones on the body and eye. It appears that almost all are in tact, except 2 but some are a little 'knicked' but hanging in there. Insde label reads Ilene New York London Paris. The lining is a bit yellowed with age and some some light staining but no rips and is holding in place well. Latch works fine. The bottom hinge screws have a couple 'internal' cracks around them and from collecting these types of bags for over 20 years I can say this is quite a common problem. However - I have used and displayed this bag myself - it's time to weed out some of my collection.
ask any questions prior to offerding on item. Many of my items are
vintage/estate sale items. Most are in 'as found' condition as my
knowledge of cleaning/repair of older items can often result in
ruining the item. I leave that to the collector who has more
knowledge about their individual passions. I describe items the best
way I can including any
and all perceived flaws,
but condition is subjective, especially on vintage items. I love
them and use them personally and in my home all the time. I will not
put up for sale, an item I would not use or display myself...even
if it has some flaws...in my opinion, it's part of the charm of
vintage items. But everyone has a different idea so
But..with that in mind, I will work
hard to make you happy.
Communication is the key.
on items is firm. I will
offer a combined shipping discount on item closing within the same
calendar day only.
This is a part time 'make ends meet' project for me, so I ship on
days that are convenient for me...typically twice a week. I will
email once item is in route.
