Vintage 1920's crocheted purse with bakelite handle. OK, I have not tested this, but neither am I charging for bakelite. It sure looks like a bakelite bracelet was used as the handle for this gorgeous purse, made of mercerised cotton. The top fold over and closes with a button. This purse looks to have never been used and is not lined. So dainty and demure, perfect for an afternoon's outing in the park. It measures 8.5 inches by 9 inches. The famous handle is 3 inches across.
