SALE Vintage 1940s 1950s brown cotton fabric purse bag wood ruler opening

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


This unusual purse or bag was probably used for craft or school supplies due to the black and red spots that look like ink or paint. It also has an old-fashioned wood ruler for the opening.

The purse has a lot of wear, but it is still useable:

1.The color is somewhat faded due to age and use.
2.There are two loose stitches on one end of a ruler.
3.The ecru cotton lining is stained with brown, yellow, and gray spots and smudges. However, these don’t appear to show through to the brown material.
4.The fabric inside and out is free of hokes, tears, dry rot, or bad smells.

The purse measures 15 ½” x 11”.
