Metal Panel Handbag by Dorset Rex
An American gold metal panel handbag, made in the late 1940's - early 1950's. Clear lucite handle with lined interior and mirror to the inside of the lid. Unlabelled but I believe by Dorset Rex. It measures 9 inches long by 3.75 deep by 4.5 high and 8 inches (12cm x 9.5 x 11.5 x 20) to the top of the handle. Condition is vintage and used but good.

Dorset Rex Handbag
American two tone gold basket weave bag with phenolic tortoise shell lid and lucite handle. I believe made by Dorset Rex (but no label - which often fall off) in the late 1940's - early 1950's. The catch is the typical Dorset Rex hook type. It measures 8.5 inches long by 6 deep by 3.75 high and 8 to the top of the handle (22cm x 15 x 12 x 20). Condition is good with a few minor age marks and dirt from use to the inner lining as one would expect.

It bears an indistinct shop stamp to the interior - Barret Fifth Avenue. The catch is the typical Dorset Rex S and hook type with a safety chain. It measures 9.5 inches long by 4 deep by 6 high and 10 to the top of the handle (24cm x 10 x 15 x 25).

Phenolic Handbag
Brown leather and amber phenolic handled handbag. Dates to the late 1920's. It measures 8 inches by 6.75 (20cm x 17). Inside there are 3 sections, one with a side pocket in the lining. Condition is used and vintage but good, there is a tiny corner of phenolic missing to the end of the phenolic handle corner and a small hairline to one other but these are tiny and barely visible - mentioned for accuracy. A really rare and stunning usable handbag.
