  • Lucite
This pretty little purse is in very good vintage condition: all of the beautiful beading appears to be intact, and there are no rips, tears or holes. The Lucite shows a bit of age appropriate scuffing, but this is not easily discernible; the underside of the Lucite, however, has a few more visible scuffs and scratches, but again, this is not discernible when the purse is worn. The interior grey silky satin lining has a small compartment, complete with a mirror tucked inside - this lining needs to be tacked back; this is easily done with glue. The brass catch is in excellent working condition and shows a minute amount of age appropriate discoloration.

The measurements are approximate:
height: 5"
width: 8.5 "
strap: 6.5" high, when extended

This purse would certainly finish off your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a wonderful addition to your vintage purse collection; it is a fine example of 1940s - 1950s fashion.
