Vintage Round Silver Cut Steel Box Purse, ca 1940s

$175.00 USD



  • Cut Steel
  • Satin
This pretty little purse is in excellent vintage condition: there is a small discoloration spot on the bottom, as magnified in photo #5, and another - barely discernible - on the back, as magnified in photo #8. Please be sure to note the luminous quality of the beautiful cut steels and the intricate fluting all around the purse. The interior is lined in black satin; the interior mirror is intact and has lost some of its silvering - which makes it match the purse even more!

The measurements are approximate:
height: 5"
diameter: 5 1/2"
strap: 8" high, when extended

This purse would certainly enhance - or be the focal point of - your contemporary or vintage ensemble and would be a wonderful addition to your vintage purse collection; it is a fine example of wearable 1940s - 1950s textile art and fashion.
