Just an old fashioned "pretty" handbag. I have sold this bag several times in the past and its appearance never fails to impress me. It is just so pretty! It was made by a company out of New York named "Soure" during the 1950's. This company made bags from the 1940's to 1960's that captured the essence of the time. Many were floral and accented with heavy beading, others had a sheet of vinyl over their cloth covered fronts. This bag is a large size. It is rectangular. It is made of a luscious and soft velvet fabric. It is a deep black. The front is designed with vertical "stripes" made from fabric trimmings. Each stripe or "column" has more than one trim, each layered upon the next. The black velvet shows between the stripes. The trim is interesting in itself, ranging from teeny flowers to lush cut velvet. The time needed to construct such a design proves what care and skill went into making this bag. There are five black grosgrain ribbon bows tacked onto the front of the bag. Four have a "leaf" resin charm attached while the one in the middle has a multi faceted black round "button". Black "lacey" trim borders the bag on the top and bottom. All this ornamentation gives the bag dimension and depth. The colors of the ribbons range from a sunny yellow gold to a deep purple. The colors predominantly give off a pink/purple vibe. Very feminine and "ladylike." The back is the soft velvet, it has no ornamentation.. The bag opens and closes with a push up gold tone tab. There is a velvet carry strap with a drop of 4 1/2". The inside is lined with a satiny black fabric and there is a "ruffled" open slip pocket. The cloth label "Soure Bag New York" is sewn inside. The inside is in pristine condition. The measurements are 13 1/2"w x 8"h x 2 1/2"d. The bag is in ultra great condition with only minuscule signs of age and wear. The bag reminds me of Spring, Easter and Fun. It is funky in a feminine sort of way. It is not only large in size but also large in the prettiness factor! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
