  • Details
    Vintage 1920's Art Deco flapper era celluloid framed purse.

    The frame has been produced from a rich cream celluloid with push down knob clasp. The bag has been produced from plain black glass beadwork and the inside is a black silk lining with a ruffled edge which is sown onto the frame. A long twisted silk cord is attached to the bag through two original celluloid loops which allows the bag to be used as a shoulder bag, unusual for bags from this period.

    The bag measures 8 1/4 inches in length from the top of the frame, excluding the clasp. The bag measures 1o 3/4 inches at its widest point.

    Sold in excellent vintage condition. No missing beads or rips to the inside lining. No stains on the celluloid / Bakelite frame and the long twisted silk rope handle shows minimal amounts of fraying. There is a small amount of warping to one side of the frame, but the bag still closes and remains securely closed.

    A lovely bag, perfect for that little black dress or an evening out
