Black Patent Leather Doctor-Style Frame Handbag Made in Jana

$ 30.00

A black patent leather doctor-style handbag featuring a black leather handle, gold hardware, slide lock, and brass bag feet on the bottom.  Inside, the purse is fully lined in black satin and opens up to reveal two storage pockets separated by a central metal zipper pocket.  There are two small open pockets on one side.  The purse measures 12" across, 1 1/4" wide when nothing is inside but opens to 4" wide, and 13" high.  The handle drop is 4 1/4" and the internal depth is 8".  The inside small open pocket is marked with a faded "jana" and the purse is in good original condition.  The brass has an aged patina and there are small areas of wear on the bottom of the purse.

Caring for A Leather Handbag

  • A general maintenance cleaning involves mixing a small amount of mild liquid dish soap (a couple drops in 8 ounces of water) with warm water and a soft microfiber cloth.  Ring out the cloth and wipe the purse following the grain of the leather and finish with a final wipe with a new clean damp cloth.  Always spot test a small area before cleaning.  Do not use saddle soap, bleach, vinegar, or ammonia.  Any specialty cleaners should match the type of handbag material. For example, a leather bag cleaner will not be as effective on suede as much as a specialty suede cleaner would be.    
  • Keep bag stuffed while not using it to maintain shape, and store in a dust bag or old pillow case.
  • To remove musty odors, place an open box of baking soda inside the bag and wrap in a pillowcase overnight.
  • Beeswax can be used to lubricate zippers for a smoother glide.
