1920's Figural Vintage Shell Handbag

We were so happy to acquire this amazing vintage handbag!  It came from the estate of a woman who was married to an executive who moved to Shanghai in the 1920's and they lived there for 15 years. Her estate included incredible vintage 1920s and 1930s dresses and only a few accessories, among which was this very unique handbag.  It measures 8 inches high, including the figural tortoise plastic handle and frame which has peacocks on it!  The bag appears never used and is 10 inches at the widest - a true collector's find!

In order to best determine fit, measure yourself or a garment that fits you well. Compare those measurements to those on the item description.
