SORRY, I AM ALREADY SOLD.

The twisted handle alone identifies this bag as a Wilardy. Happily it is signed, too, although hard to see and did not photograph. Wilardy is lightly engraved on the top inside hinge. The shells are real; the sand is made of something that looks like extremely teeny beads, maybe.
Measures 7-1/2" wide x 4" high (a cool 9-1/2" high with handle) x 4-1/4" deep.
This bag is in excellent condition, despite a small crack near the seam in the back. (See photo above left.) This is a hairline crack which doesn't effect the structure of the bag and truly has little more significance than a deep scratch. The mirror is missing from the lid, but no remnants of this can be seen from the outside.
This is no odor, clouding, or discoloration. No broken shells. Hardware is free of corrosion, just not as brightly shiny as new. The clasp closed very securely.
Even with its minor flaws, this bag displays like perfection and is a rare Wilardy treasure.
