A wonderful vintage ikat weave purse by Christine Custom Bags of Detroit in a bold and bright primary color scheme. Christine Custom Bags was a business run by Joan Rodman Schrandt from the 1920s until the 1950s or 1960s. I think this bag dates from somewhere in the 1940s-1960s. Most of the Christine bags I've seen are needlepoint; you could purchase a needlepoint pattern at Joan's shop, do needepoint work at home, then bring the completed piece back to the shop to be made into a purse!

*Label: Christine Custom Bags Detroit, Michigan
*Bag is fabric with a metal frame and metal chain handle; red satin lining
*Bag measures 12 1/2" (31.75 cm) wide at its base, 8" (20 cm) tall, and 2 3/8" (6 cm) deep at its base. Chain measures 14 5/8" (37 cm) long.
*Top kisslock clasp closure; chain carrying handle; two interior pleated slot pockets
*A couple faint marks to the white part of the ikat weave on both sides of bag--see pic--plus a few loose woven threads here and there, nothing major.
*Very good condition overall
