No self respecting 1950s fashionista would dare be seen without a lucite handbag. Sold only in the high end department stores, these unique pieces adorned the arms of the glamourous ladies of the day in a wide variety of colours & shapes. Sadly, few originals remain and those that do are usually snapped up by collectors at eye-watering prices.

Miss L Fire has designed a range of reproduction Lucite handbags that would fool even the most ardent collector. Every detail has been thought of, from the clasps to the engraving, creating an authentic 50s look suitable for any budding starlet. Available in a variety of colours & styles.

The Lucite Handbags are available from £56.99 from What Katie Did in store and online.

  • Fantastic idea – strange, but i just said to my Mam yesterday as we checked out handbags at a local vintage fair, why didn’t they make bags like these any more. Thank you for posting about this 🙂
