Vintage 1940 - 1950 Velvet Pastoral Scene Purse for the Romantic

In beautiful condition, this romantic Courting Couple design has a tapestry look that is woven right into the soft black velvet fabric and is identical on the front and back. The traditional Pastoral Scenes may wax and wane in popularity but they are never totally "out of style." These scenes are also often referred to as "Colonial Couples."

In bright blue and green hues on a black background, the plush fabric is lined with a creamy satin and hand sewn to it's lovely golden frame. In pristine condition it is without stains or wear inside and out. This is a "good sized" purse (particularly if used as an evening bag) measuring 8 1/2" x 9 1/2" with one open pocket on the inside. The patterned metal frame is a shiny gold. The twin kiss closures were made with one rhinestone on the tip of each prong-- for a total of four sparkling stones. One of the stones is gone but is not readily missed due to the positioning of the prong and the fact that they are not a focal point of the purse. A single gold toned rope chain handle measures 13".
