DECADES

JUST IN TIME FOR THE PROM, THIS VIVID SCARLET RED PURSE IS COMPLETELY COVERED AND DRIPPING WITH BEADS ALL OVER. THIS EVENING BAG IS BOTH ELEGANT AND FUN. WOULD MAKE A GREAT GIFT TOO. NEW AND NEVER USED, BUT A STYLE REMINISCENT OF A BAG THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN CARRIED BY A ROARING 1920'S FLAPPER. PERFECT ALSO FOR CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR, AND VALENTINE'S DAY PARTIES.

It is a bit hard to measure this bag. The fringe hangs down all over. The pouch part of the purse itself is just under 8 inches at its widest point. From clasp in the center to bottom of the pouch it is 4 inches. From the top of the handle to the bottom of the fringe is 12 inches. When opened the width from front to back of that opening is 3 inches. The inside of the purse in the center goes down 4 inches. The metal handle is hinged and folds back or front, but it does not fold flat.

The body of the bag is made of a beautiful red satin--both inside and out. There is one small pocket inside, as is typical of most purses, to hold a compact or lipstick. It is a lovely purse--new old stock. I bought it as a special treat for myself many years ago, but never had any occasion to use it.
