If you’ve been wanting to crochet your own 1940s style corde purses, but have been unable to locate period hardware, you’re in luck. This is a lot of 5 vintage 1940s clear lucite handbag hardware accessories, including a wonderful chunky kiss-lock frame with scalloped edges, a large twisted ring wrist loop handle/zipper pull, a smaller carved twisted loop zipper pull, and large and small diamond shaped zipper pulls. All of these pieces came from estate sales as parts; I did not remove any of these from vintage handbags. The large diamond pull still has its original department store tag on it, so it was obviously sold as a sewing notion.

The frame measures 6.75” long x 3” tall (exclusive of the clasp) x 1.25” deep; the wrist loop measures about 4” across; the smaller loop about 3” tall; the small diamond 3” from corner to corner; and the large diamond 5” tall.

This lot is in very good vintage condition. The small diamond has a small black spot on one edge which I could not remove with a wet rag. The purse frame has a tiny chip (about 1/8” across) in front of one of the holes that holds the metal bars. This is not noticeable except on very close inspection. I can send a photo on request. The closure snaps tightly, the hinge works smoothly and the metal hardware is in perfect condition. The metal bars slide out to attach the bag. They fit snugly so they shouldn’t pop loose with normal use. The frame will open to a completely flat position. All the pieces have light surface wear and/or minor scuffs consistent with age, but no major gouges or scratches.

These pieces are extremely hard to find, so get these while you can.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
