Rare 1950s Liberty of London Silk Bermuda Bag for Smith's of Bermuda
Beautiful and rare 1950s silk Bermuda bag by Liberty of London for H.A & E. Smith. The print on the bag depicts an underwater scene featuring a colorful coral reef landscape, tropical fish & sea horses. It measures approximately 9 1/2" in length by 10" in width. The silk on the bag has some age spots and the piping on the bag is coming loose on one spot on one side of the bag. There are also some marks in the interior of the bag. See the photos for these issues. Despite having some condition issues I have listed this bag as I think it is so charming and such a throw back in time. I have also listed a matching scarf in a separate listing on my website. Smith's was an institution in Bermuda. It sold high-quality clothing, accessories and homewares and was housed in what is now the location of Brown & Co. on Front Street.
