The clasp is adorned with a metal Art Deco overhang. Lift the striped overhang and it pops the clasp open, then close the clasp by pinching and the overhang flops down. I believe this was excellently re-lined sometime in the 1940s; it's still in very good, usable condition, and there's a coin pocket on one side. Know that bags of this sort shouldn't be banged about - they're pieces of history. One may even hang it in a shadow box for room decor.
It's a tall 14 inches from top of chain (original) to the bottom of the fringe and 5 1/8 inches wide at the bottom. From my nonsmoking, no pet, no mildew home. Movie star photo not included. My vintage, retro & retro items have been used & loved by me for their history & value.
Porcelain, china and had thrown pottery. May have imperfections that were part of their original making. Jewelry, beaded bags, silk clothing and other items may show wear, even with my care, so closely examine the photos; I endeavor to point out imperfections, but please.
Itll save you & I time if you dont like it when you get it. Know that vintage/antique items, their cost.& history typically mean increased value over time, so printing out a copy of your win is a good idea unless you got a steal of a deal in which case, just ignore me.
