    Ava Gardner Owned Koret Handbag and Floral Scarf. Renown for their craftsmanship and classic designs, Koret was a popular handbag of choice in the '40s, '50s and '60s. This handsome example must have been one of Ava's wardrobe staples, as there are minor signs of wear to the exterior and ink and lipstick marks along the interior. With a locking front clasp and adjustable handle (the drop ranges from 5.5" to 11.5"), the bag is 9" wide by 6.5" high, and is lined in striking red leather. In Very Good condition with two interior pockets, one zippered, and the Koret logo embossed in gold along lining. Also included in this lot is a blue floral silk scarf measuring 44" x 15". in Excellent condition. From the Ava Gardner Estate.
