Mark Cross handbag circa 1960s

Mark Cross handbag circa 1960s, originally uploaded by daisybush.

Another red bag!

I like the note that goes with this image:

"In excellent condition although it's missing the shoulder strap that clips onto the brass rings at the base of the handle. Mark Cross used to have stores across America (I remember visiting the Ala Moana Shopping Centre store (Oahu, Hawaii) with my parents. Mark Cross ceased trading in the 1990s (I think). The brand was famously name checked by Grace Kelly in Hitchcock's movie "Rear Window", when she opens her Mark Cross overnight handbag in front of James Stewart."
