This beautiful, large vintage vanity purse is vintage celluloid. It is in excellent, vintage condition with no chips, cracks or damage to the celluloid at all. It is a deeper red with black detailing and raised "buttons" on the front, back, looped handle and all the way around the purse. The strap is leather that is in superb condition. It has a slider that easily moves up and down and this is how the purse is opened and closed. There is a round, celluloid decorated loop at the top of the strap. The interior has a beveled mirror that has very minute specks of silver loss around the very edge and the mirror is a bit cloudy but still reflective - no cracks, chips or extensive silver loss - it is really quite good. The other side of the purse is silk lined with two gathered pockets. The fabric is in pretty good condition with a small split (about 1/2") noted in the top pocket. There is a matching silk tag that is beginning to shred but, as best I can tell, it reads "The Little Nellie Kelly Bag." It is no longer attached but I am leaving it with the purse as I am sure it is original to the bag. The body of the purse measures about 4" in diameter. The strap is about 8 1/2" to the top of the loop. This is truly a magnificent celluloid purse and one not often seen - in superb condition.
