This is a pretty cool purse. You could take it to be Hipster, but I was thinking more of blustery British Colonel. The fabric is port-wine red and crackled like it spent time shouting at recruits whilst dealing with gout. Two tabs each the side of the closure look so much like noses that they HAD to have grey mustaches with fine silver lines painted beneath them. The two mustaches are different shapes to each other.

This purse is hand-painted by me (that's five years at art school working for ya) with professional-quality acrylic paint, and sealed with UV-protective gloss finish coating. Acrylic paint is flexible, water-proof and durable, but it's not invulnerable to scratches.

This is a red fabric clutch purse with a strong magnetic closure. Inside it's clean with black fabric lining and a zipped pocket. The purse is in very good shape with only one area of "flaw" — the very center of the metal top is discolored on the inside (see photo). It is not noticeable from the outside.

Label: no label.
5" tall x 12" wide x 1.5" deep.
(No handle)

-------------------------- Note -------------------------------------------------------------------------

All the purses I use are preowned and/or vintage. That means they are unique, and after painting, they are absolutely one-of-a-kind. I scour local thrift stores for great bags ready for a second life. I clean them, prep them and paint them.

If you have an idea of what you want or a purse that you'd like upcycled, contact me and we'll talk.
