*VINTAGE '40s '50s NAVY CROCHET LOOK CORD DESIGN HANDBAG PURSE WITH BEAUTIFUL HUGE TWISTED LUCITE CIRCULAR HANDLES
A vintage 1950s crochet-look cord handbag purse with very large twisted what looks like Lucite round twisted handles in navy . Six lines inside the twisted handles for decoration. It reminds me of Lalique. Just gorgeous! Old vintage metal zipper across the top for closure. The color of the navy is not light like shown in some of the photos but a rich deep navy shade.
I love the pattern of the cording on the purse as it is very artfully designed and intricate. Twisted round balls of cording in rows on the purse which make it look so beautiful. You would never see such elaborate designs in purses made today as manufacturers make them as cheaply as possible and they look like it. The purse is quite large so you will be able to carry all of your necessities with you. The photos have been lightened so the design can be seen.
There is a small side pocket inside which would be handy for a mirror or some dollar bills & a license. There is a 3/4" x 3/4" hole in the inside lining which could be pulled together with a needle & thread or the cleaners could do it for you. You cannot see it from the outside but only when the purse is open but no one would probably notice it since the lining is dark navy.
Appx. measurements: Across the top 14", 9-1/2" high & 1" wide;, however, when you put items in your purse, the dimensions stretch to accommodate & hold more because of the cording used.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning. Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower. Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it. The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
