Vintage 1940s Black Tapestry Handbag with Geometric Pattern by Noveltrim NSW AustraliaVintage 1940s Black Tapestry Handbag with Geometric Pattern by Noveltrim NSW AustraliaVintage 1940s Black Tapestry Handbag with Geometric Pattern by Noveltrim NSW AustraliaVintage 1940s Black Tapestry Handbag with Geometric Pattern by Noveltrim NSW Australia

This 1940’s black tapestry handbag made by Noveltrim in Sydney, Australia, is a rare find. The lovely little purse is constructed of nubby tapestry fabric with a stitched geometric pattern of circles and lines. It has a silvertone wrist chain and a curved hinged frame covered with black satin. The kiss clasp opens to reveal a corde interior with one slip pocket.

This small handbag measures 7 by 10 inches, and the wrist chain has a 5 ½ inch drop. The satin which covers the hinged frame has some discoloration and fading from the light, but the bag is otherwise in excellent vintage condition with tight stitching and no stains, holes, or scents.

The maker’s label attached to the pocket says “Made in NSW, fashioned by Lanza, a Product of Noveltrim. Specific information about the New South Wales company history wasn’t easy to find, but I did discover this gem in a digitized copy of the Sydney Morning Herald, July 30, 1947. This ad appears in the classified section: “Girls for light table work on handbags. Unskilled and experienced juniors and seniors will find congenial conditions and wages. . . . No Saturday, finish early Friday. Music while you work. NOVELTRIM. 443 Kent St. 1 min from Town Hall.” We should all have music while we work! So this wonderful little vintage handbag is obviously made for singing while you work! And dancing down the street!
