Vintage 40's Genuine "CORDE" Jet Black Gimp Purse with Scalloped Front Design. This wonderful purse is in good vintage condition. The exterior is clean, no snags, no rips, no chaffing & no stains. The snap closure is in working order and the hardware has lots of patina. The handle is sturdy and clean- the edging on the inside of the strap does show wear (has some fraying); however when you use the purse it doesn't even show. It has 2 side pockets which are layered. The top is a purse-length slide pocket. The bottom pocket has a metal zipper (zipper is in good working order) - the lining in this zippered pocket is totally loose (see 3rd pic). The purse has a wide mouth opening which makes it easy to reach and see your belongings. Measurements: 10" across 6" tall approx. The strap handle is 1" wide.

Gimp is a technique used to embellish with folds of fabric (something like corduroy). Corde made this technique synonymous with their handbags in the 1940's. It was also know to be long lasting. It is so flexible it can hold many items inside. Beautiful Corde Clutch, Perfect for evening wear or parties. Pretty Front and back designs that make corde bags unique.

Please convo me if you have any questions. I will wrap it and pack it carefully; so it can be ready to be enjoyed! Thanks for looking!
