Description

Antique Purse Hand Decorated Original by * Caron of Houston, TX* Hand Decorated Braided Pallet, Tortoise Handle 30s-40s Purse

This lovely black fabric bag is structured and has a pretty pallet of color on front. The decoration is outlined in a heavy braid of peach then inside the braid you'll find 3 appliques of flowers/leaves on a bed of small beads of copper/bronze colors. The bag also has 4 jeweled stones in peach/orange color in the framing of the braid. You'll also find brass/metal leaves awash in the setting. Below that framed decoration is another pair of brass/bronze leaves on either side of another jewel surrounded by beads like those in the above pallet.

The bag is a single closure at top center. The frame of the bag is gold/brass color and the beautiful handle is of a tortoise look with decorative touches on handle that moves slightly within the rings holding it at the top of bag.

The inside of the bag is black vinyl which is in perfect condition.
There are two spots on rear corners of bag that show some wear - could possibly be re-touched with marker to camouflage the small spots of wear. (pictures show this).

This is a remarkable piece of work so like the items of this era. This lovely handbag belonged to our Grandmother and then our Mother.

Purse would be a lovely addition to a collection or use for decoration in your boudoir. Would also be a lovely accessory for a wedding, dressy affair - very classy.

Purse measures 11" W, 7"T and bottom thickness is approx. 3" The lovely tortoise handle has an approx. 4" drop.

Please feel free to ask questions.
