Wow, this vintage brown genuine Corde` purse from the forties is simply stunning. It features dark brown corded fabric in seven geometric designs on the front and back, a satin-backed handle and a drop-dead gorgeous, pierced metal frame. The frame has scrolls along its top, sides and bottom edges. The raised metal piece on the front corners of the frame adds a very Art Deco touch. If that is not enough, it also has a fabulously ornate, gold tone metal fold-over snap clasp that holds securely.
The interior of the bag is satin-lined with two slip pockets and one zip compartment. The fabric label inside reads "Genuine Corde`". The bag is in excellent condition and measures approximately 9 1/2" X 6 1/2" (excluding handle) X 3 1/2". So tempted to keep this one for myself!
