From the 1950s, here's a large sized black velvet tapestry and leather handbag. The interior is lined in a medium brown colored suede. It has one zippered pocket and two envelope pockets which are lined in an off white moire silk. It also has two very convenient full sized pockets on the exterior, one in front and one back. It is stamped inside FOR CORET - Made in Italy.
Measurements are 14 inches wide x 9 inches high x 3 1/2 inches deep. When opened it measures 6 1/2 inches in depth. When you extend the two large pockets along with the interior it expands to 11 inches.
I cannot be certain but the straps on this may have been changed at some point in time as they are not the same quality as the leather surrounding the velvet and the sides. There is a little wear to the leather edging, this could be touched up with a good leather product. Interior is clean.
An easy to use purse from the 1950s...adds some drama to one's outfit!
