Here is a truly marvelous and rare purse from the early 1900s! It is done in brown leather -- see the adorable pleats -- and the ornate frame is celluloid that has been highlighted with color on the details. It is in very good condition and is so unique!

The leather feels supple, but I am sure it could use some conditioning. I think one would need to do their homework before oiling it or polishing it. I was not brave enough to take that on.

It has a strap handle attached to the celluloid frame. the size of the purse is 9" by 8", The strap is 7 5/8" b 1/2". Notice in the photograph how nice the pale pink silk lining remains. It delicate, I am sure -- but I see no tears or compromise.

This has been hanging from a vanity mirror in my bedroom for about 20 years. It's just a marvelous and unusual piece!
