    IMG_2123.JPG Hi. This handbag belonged to my Grandmother (born in 1918). She obviously never used it. It has a mirror and purse. I would love any information about which decade it is from etc. I have not found a photo of a similar one online. Thanks.

    English...I've not run across any Waldybags in my neck of the woods, but I'd estimate 1950s with that neat little structured shape. How does that hangtag compare to this one? http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O69940/waldybag-handbag-and-purse-h-wald-co/ I see a similar motif in the hardware of this bag: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/572801646338036421/ which was 1950s-era according to the person who sold the bag (which doesn't always mean much).

    How lovely to have your grandmother's bag in such fine condition!
