This vintage handbag was never used...it still has the MADIGAN'S department store tag attached. (The Chicago store is long gone.) Inside label says...'Hand Made in China - Regale Ltd.'
Circa 1960s, this purse is very lovely and unique. The background design is embroidered cloth and layered over it are swirls of pearly white seed beads. The beading is done on the front and back but the portion under the flap is unbeaded. The inside is white silken fabric.with a little side pouch. A goldtone box chain can be used to wear as a shoulder bag or tuck it inside to use as a clutch. The chain measures 14 inches to center from top of bag. The purse measures 8 inches across by 4 3/4 inches high. Snap front closure. Excellent unused condition.
