*VINTAGE 40S BLACK CORD DESIGN HANDBAG PURSE WITH BEAUTIFUL LUCITE INDENTED CLOSURE
A vintage 1940s cord handbag purse with straps in pitch black cord with a stunning what looks like a large acrylic knob closure with a gold disk underneath. It looks like a flower when seen from above. It reminds me of Lalique. Etched indented sides on the knob for decoration and interest. Just gorgeous! Clasp shuts very well and securely. The color of the black is not light like shown in some of the photos but a rich deep black shade.
I love the pattern of the cording on the purse as it is very artfully designed and intricate. The photos have been lightened so the design can be seen. There is a big plastic zippered pocket with a metal pull on one side and in addition, there are two open curved flat pockets with gold trim. Cord handles lined with black fabric on the other side. Also a black faille interior which is very clean. A very small bit of wear with a bit of loss of cording close to where the closure of the clutch is but no one is going to notice that for it is minimal and when the purse is shut, it cannot be seen.
Across the top where the clasp is 8-1/4", 7-1/2" high, 10-1/4 across the bottom front of the purse and nearly 2" wide.
A beautiful vintage handbag with a gorgeous clear Lucite decorated knob for closure!

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.
