Unique and rare 1940's deco styled butterscotch bakelite box purse. Beautiful curved design and streaked bakelite plastic. Bakelite ball feet on the bottom, a plastic ball for the front clasp. Bakelite is varnished. Brass hardware. No makers marks. Reasonable offers welcome.

Condition: Very good. As far as a decorative piece, this is excellent. However, the plastic clasp is broken off and is not a functional purse. Possibly a new clasp could be fit to the purse, the ball catch is still there. There are some surface scratches, but nothing blatantly noticeable. One small blemish in the plastic on the back right at the corner where the hinged top meets the purse, but looks original to the purse.

Height: 4 1/2"

Handle Width: @7"
