This is a super cute vintage 1950's Charles S. Kahn of Miami, Florida black Lucite purse with rhinestone trim around the edges and on the clear horseshoe handle.
The clear Lucite lid has a carved floral design so typical of these purses and is in amazingly good condition with no glazing, cracks or scratches.

The plain and undamaged inside has the original Charles S. Kahn paper label and there are no odors.

Very nice hinge system that allows the lid to stand straight up with the handle being allowed to hang straight down behind the lid so as not to be accidently damaged; great design.
The closeure latch is different & classier than most in that it is also carved clear lucite instead of the standard metal ball closeure. It snaps up and over a small metal pin; again a great design feature. 

No cracks, breaks or damage; there is one ¼" scratch on the left end piece up near the top and that is all I can find in the way of marks or scratches.

The prong set rhinestones are all present and in good condition except on the top of the handle where contact with hands have caused some yellowing of the stones. I do not consider this a flaw but rather a testiment to age authenticity.  They could be replaced by a patient person, but I don't find them distracting in any way.

My favorite feature of this purse is the size. It is a nice small, but roomy, size for evenings out. It is not bulky in any manner, but rather ideally designed as a classy little bag for a night out on the town.  

This darling vintage Lucite purse has been used but well taken care of and you shouldn't be disappointed in any way.

Payment by personal check for this item is preferred, but Paypal/credit card will be accepted through Paypal.
