Vintage 1940s Evening Bag Round Handbag Purse Unused Iridescent Blue and Bronze


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful 1940s era handbag purse made in a round shape.  The lady from whom I acquired it told me that it was old store stock and was never used - it certainly looks unused.  The purse is fully beaded with iridescent blue glass bead with bronze bead circular detailing, on both sides. It has a beaded carrying strap handle.  The purse has a “Lightning” brand metal zipper closure with a beaded ball pull.  The purse is lined with a navy blue faille fabric.  It measures 6 1/2” in diameter and has a depth of 1 1/4” - it can probably be stuffed a little more, but it is an evening purse, so meant only to carry essentials.  The handle has a drop of 4 1/2”.  As mentioned, it is in excellent condition and looks unused.  Nice period purse, great round shape and striking beading, unusual to find unused like this!
