Retro brass purse featuring a two part pillow design. This opens in the center to a dark blue velvet lining on the interior. We find a copper band in the center and a decorative scrolled latch for a clasp. This has a long chain link strap to finish the look.
Don't be fooled by the ornate look on this. It dates from the late 1970s into the 1980s and is most likely from India.
The purse is 4 inches square and the strap has an 18 1/2 drop. We see some patina on the finish. We also see a bit of fraying on the interior edge of the lining where the two halves meet. You could easily add some decorative edging there to improve the look and save the edge.
