This fun polished brass purse has decorative piercings in the brass on all four sides. The top, bottom, and handle are beautiful, amber-colored striped celluloid, also polished to a high gloss. The plastic is held by rivets. The handle is a hinged horseshoe-shape; the brass hinges are held to the top of the purse by screws. The clasp is a spring-type that closes tightly. This unmarked purse dates from the 1940's. It is in excellent original condition. The size is 7 1/2" X 4 1/2" X 3 1/4" tall. The handle is 3 1/2" tall and 4" wide. It fits nicely in the hand for carrying.
