1950s Embroidered Purse Black Felt Round Purse with Big Plastic Rings
Such a very cool purse!
The body is black wool felt with bright embroidery on the front and the back in variegated shades of green, blue, brown and red. There are 2 black plastic rings for handles and big plastic rings on the front and the back, held on with felt loops around the edges.
The sides are plain black felt. Inside is lined with acetate with some vinyl around the inner edge of the metal zipper that runs across the top.
No maker's labels.
The purse is about 11 inches across and 2-1/2 inches thick.
Era - originally I was thinking 1940s, a felt purse seems so 1940s. But the vinyl lining that is inside along the zipper seems more like something that you would see from the late 1950s to 1960s.
Excellent condition, no flaws seen.
