Char Leather Whipstitch Fringe Shoulder Bag Hand Painted Florals 70s Rare

$525

About

Fabulous, unique vintage Char Leather whipstitch shoulder bag with reptile skin inserts, long fringe & hand painted florals, likely made in the early 70s. Unlined without closure. Very rare style and color way, and so hard to find nowadays, especially in this condition. Preowned/vintage (40+ years old) with signs of prior use/wear: patina & some spots to exterior, length variation on some of the fringe. 14in H x 12in L (top) x .5in D w/16in strap drop. About the designer: Char leather goods started in the late 60s by handbag designer Charlotte Blankenship de Vasquez. The brand eventually expanded to include southwestern influenced jackets, long vests, skirts and more. The earliest pieces are extremely collectible works of wearable art, featuring hand painting, fringe & whipstitching.
