This vintage Ingber leather purse is in good condition. You can still see the Ingber logo stamped inside very slightly.
It is beige leather with vinyl edging trim and there is no cracking or peeling! Due to the age of the purse the vinyl trim has some areas of yellowing. (See 2nd pic) The design is an open-lattice design with a patent leather lining under it. The patent leather lining under the open-lattice work has no yellowing at all!
This purse is 11 ½” wide at the bottom and is 10 ¾” tall. The bottom panel measures 7/8”. It has a brass clasp closure. So the brass closure, the leather and patent leather, and the size of the purse make it a somewhat heavy purse.
It has a roomy interior. The inner compartment has one open pocket with gold rope edging for a mirror and one zippered pocket. It has 1" carry strap, and about 4 ½” of the stitching on the under part of the strap is not there but it is seen on the upper part of the handle that is seen. (See 4th pic) A little craft glue between the layers will seal and prevent any more of the strap from coming apart.
There is a small rust stain on the inside lining just below the brass clasp, and some very light stains that are almost unnoticeable. There are holes or odor in the stripped cloth lining. The metal closure and trim has the usual wear for a bag of this age. See photos for details.
Due to the minor flaws this purse has been priced accordingly.
This is a very nice and well-made vintage purse.
