This 1930s era clutch has been covered with antique paisley fabric, no doubt cut from a Victorian shawl. The material is SO detailed, it is just beautiful! I can see why someone was inspired to use it. It's very carefully done, all hand-stitched and tailored to the purse. They even removed the handle, then covered and reattached it. I think this was likely done in the 30s, because these small handles went out of fashion after that time, and they'd have probably just discarded it in a different era. And it feels padded, I think they may have used two layers. Gold-tone art deco frame, studded with marcasites. Red and orange are the dominant colors, and deeper than pictured - more like photo #2 - with touches of blue, green, and ivory.

5 3/4" H x 9 1/2" W x 1 1/4" D (14.5 x 24 x 3 cm)

No labels.

CONDITION: Good. The paisley has some wear, especially at the top of the handle and on the front near the frame. The frame is missing some marcasites, and the lining shows wear and is missing its coin purse.
