This pretty summer vintage handbag has multicolored floral vining embroidery on a creamy white ground, and includes a tethered kiss lock coin purse in the same fabric as the lining.
It measures 9" across it's widest,
it is 8 1/2" from top to bottom, and
the fabric handle is 14" long.
The closure is an early plastic, celluloid or bakelite, perhaps, in a creamy off- white shade, with the clasp being a distinctly Art Deco geometric design, dating this to the 1930s.
The plastic frame is in remarkable condition, while the fabric is in very good condition with only a small, very light stain near the bottom on one side (see attached photos) which happily is disguised quite nicely with the swirling embroidery design.
The embroidery is in pretty pastel shades of yellows, pinks, greens and lilac, so this can be carried with a variety of garments. It's also lovely just to have on display.
