Here we have an example of the 1950's doing the 1930's. This bag was created by a handbag company that sold bags under different names at different price points but all have the name "Edwards" included in their trademark. This bag company created items throughout the 1950's and '60's. It looks so 1930's and almost had me fooled. Nevertheless, it is a great example of a handbag with a "deco" vibe. The bag is quite large and is curvaceous while having some straight lines too. It is made from a black wool that has a look of flannel. There is moderate ruching at the top which results in soft pleats. The frame is covered with this wool fabric. A very sculptural and simple clasp brings the bag into the 1930's with its deco design. It is large measuring 2 1/4"w x 1 1/4"h. It is a gold tone brass and the thick and chunky metal has a sharp and dramatic curve that loops around a large marble sized black ball. This stylized form and geometric design is characteristic of the art deco period. There is a wool carry handle with a drop of 5 1/2". The inside is lined with a black rayon fabric. There is a zippered pocket and the manufacturer's trademark is engraved in gold lettering inside. The inside is in great condition. The bag measures 11"w x 7 1/4"h (not including the clasp) x 2 3/4"d. The bag is in wonderful condition. The handle tilts a bit, easily corrected by hanging it from a door knob for awhile. Easily holds everything, this bag is visually exceptional and striking. A very simple accent transforms this bag to decade that was known for its style and design. Vintage doing vintage at its best! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
