I couldn’t resist the darling shape and pattern of this retro purse. It features a wide body that is very square but rounded around the corners. It sits up nicely and the bottom is mostly protected by little stud feet. The handles actually are stiff enough to stay upright so you can just grab and go! The diamond shaped pattern is stitched on both sides and feature lots of neutral colors like brown, cream and black but a few pops of red are thrown in here or there for an eye-catching effect. The purse opens to reveal a roomy tan vinyl interior with one zippered pocket. The purse is big enough for your average large smart phone but the pocket is not.
Condition: Very good condition. No tears or holes. A couple threads loose on the handle but still all nicely intact (see pic). A couple minor scuffs show on the tan diamonds on the back of the bag. The interior shows evidence of typical use (light markings etc…) but is mostly clean. The gold clasp was showing wear and given a new coat of 18K gold paint.
Measurements: Body of purse is 6 1/2” x 8 1/2” x 5. Handle extends 4”.
Age: Estimate early 1950/60’s
