1940's Deco iridescent blue beaded box purse with a bakelite top. Neat push-button pop open latch for top. Inside lined with a black faille, one interior pocket. No labels.

Condition: Very good. No bead loss, inside is pretty clean, some water marks. Some surface marks on the bakelite top, nothing blatant. Purse is a consignment item and we have not polished the top, but can do this. Some wear to the brass metal components, darkening on the latch and rivets. Looks like the strap may have been reattached at some point, somewhat amateurish sewing at the attachment.

Width: 4"-4 1/4"
Length: @8 1/2"
Strap Length: 20 1/2"
