Vintage 1930’s Art Deco Navy Blue Fabric Handbag with Classic Art Deco Details
This late 1930’s navy blue handbag has the most wonderful Art Deco lucite accents! The small handbag is constructed of navy blue corde with a strap of matching material. The purse has a gold-tone hinged frame with fabric gathered along the top of the frame, giving it a very soft shape. The lining is deep blue taffeta. The clever kiss clasp of a ball within a circle and the clear lucite accents across the top are quintessential Art Deco details with shapes reminiscent of the architecture of the period. The inside of the metal hinged fame is decorated with diagonal lines, the type of attention to detail so typical of the period.
This lovely little handbag is small with just enough room to carry the essentials (unlike my handbag which seems to have essentials a multitude of occasions). It measures 6 ½ by 8 inches, and the hand-carry strap has a 5 ½ inch drop. There is some color loss on the hardware and there are a couple of light marks in the material, but the handbag is otherwise in wonderful vintage condition with no holes, rips, tears, or scents. This little Art Deco handbag really is fabulous!
