From the 50s here's a vintage purse made in the USA by Ingber. This purse dates to the mid-1950s and was made of a combination of Orlon and Dynel in order to recreate a "faux fur" appearance. Orlon is an acrylic fabric while Dynel is a modacrylic fabric - Ingber called this combination fabric O'llegro. The purse has a brass frame with two knob closure and has a leather strap and leather pull tab. The interior is lined in a grosgrain fabric that is stamped Ingber, although this is faded and difficult to make out (see last close-up photo). The interior has a zippered pocket as well as three open pockets built into the lining, two of which are trimmed in gold paint along the top edge. The purse is in very good condition with only minor wear to the brass frame and scuffing to the pull tag, again, very minor. The purse measures 16 inches at its widest and 5 1/2 in depth at the bottom and has a height of 10 1/2 inches including its closure, but exclusive of its strap, which measures 6 inches in height.
Ingber & Co was founded in 1903 by brothers Isaac and David Ingber. It survived until 1966, when leather imports forced the company into closure. Ingber supplied purses for some movies, including Marjorie Morningstar and Around the World in 80 Days and was an American leader in the production of handbags
This is a really fun vintage 50s purse and a great size too, larger than most purses from that era.
