This adorably kitschy clutch purse from the 60s features pink and red flowers with faux pearl centers, a black velvet "Rose Marie" bow and shiny gold ric rac trim along the bottom front.
This is a combination of a durable vinyl exterior protecting-while-displaying the design elements on an off-white linen look background fabric. This is plastic lined, as well.
This has a brass-toned kiss-lock ball frame made by the quality manufacturer Jemco (in business since 1928 in New York City) with their diamond logo on each end of the frame.
Measures 11.5' long x 5" high with the lock extending an additional 1/2". It is about 2" deep.
When we acquired this, it already had the little scattered age spots on the back side of the purse (see attached photos, please) and one on the upper left corner of the front and the hardware has a darkened patina, we like it just as it is, it shows it's age well, in our opinion.
One of the faux pearl centers rolls around inside the plastic front; we have found this to provide entertainment during long-winded graduation/wedding ceremonies in the past.
This is not perfect, but it has started more than one conversation and has been given loads of compliments over the years.
