Vintage Johann Becker silver mesh bag
I am in total love with this sparkling 1960s vintage Johann Becker silver mesh bag by German designer, Johann Becker. The bag, made in West Germany, features mesh in flawless condition and truly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a silver-tone vintage bag shine with such a brilliant lustre. The chain and rectangular latch clasp are in very good and sturdy condition. One side of the bag’s frame has a simple diagonal etched pattern along the top rim, while the other side is smooth. There is some slight and minor tarnish to the frame, as to be expected given its age. The mesh is in pristine condition, as is the inside of the bag lined with a cream-coloured satin fabric stamped and branded ‘Johann Becker’ and with a ‘Made in West Germany’ tag stitched onto the little side pocket. I haven’t been able to find out much about this designer unfortunately but my research indicates that his bags are highly sought-after and rare. I haven’t found one in my research that is in such pristine condition and has the same smooth lines and geometric detailing of this bag. This is a piece to keep through the ages and will look sophisticated and oh-so-chic when worn with almost anything.
