Very unique vintage handbag from an incredible estate of nothing but amazing vintage clothing and accessories. She mainly had very high end designer handbags or they would be from high end boutiques and they always had some very interesting element, fabric, or shape. This one has a Maxx New York label. The woman who owned the estate from which I acquired the bag purchased it in the 1980s on a shopping trip to New York. This one is made of fabulously supple black leather and a very interesting, heavy, gold tone twisted ring that gives several style options! Very well made and in excellent condition!
