This is a cute and unusual late 1950s, possibly early 60s, black pleated fabric handbag! The fabric is permanently pleated in curves, the handle is a twisted woven version of the same fabric, and the kiss-lock clasp is two balls set on top of two squares (see pic 4). This is a great little bag for dressy or everyday wear!

- No maker or content tags. The fabric exterior feels like a rayon-blend, the interior is heavier, more like an acetate twill. There is a small pocket (4¼” wide by 2” high) stitched on one side of the interior. NOTE: photos have been lightened to show detail - the bag is very black.

- Condition: very good. This cutie has been loved! The gold-tone frame and clasp are worn; silver metal is showing through in places. The twist-woven handle is worn near the connectors and is a bit threadbare (a few tiny stitches with black thread could fix that).

Please check the measurements closely! Bags often look bigger in photos.
Width (widest point front side to side): 9½”
Width (top at frame side to side): 6”
Height (top to bottom): 5”
Depth (front to back at bottom): 2”
Handle has a 4½” drop
