Vintage 1950’s or ’60’s Mid-Century
Brown Velvet Box Purse
Condition: This purse is in excellent condition for it’s age but does show a worn area on the inside of the area of the top flap next to the snap. There are also some marks here and there in the velvet which are probably caused from being stored next to other items that have pressed into it. The handle tends to have bends in it from being stored in a box with other things sitting on top of it. I believe that this might straighten out if it were hung by the handle with a small weight inside of the purse. The inside lining is totally intact…it appears to have been glued in especially the section that overlaps the rest of the lining coming down from the purse snap. Some of that glue at the bottom of the purse near the bottom inch of that part of the lining appears to have dried out and let loose. Be sure and check the photos as they are an integral part of the discription and do a much better job of showing condition issues than what I can explain through the use of the written word.
Measurements: 7 7/16″ long, 3 3/8″ tall, not counting the handle
Happy Collecting !!!!!
Disclaimer: Photographs with a ruler are there to show scale only and usually will not show exact
measurements due to the fact that the measurements on a ruler start 1/16″ into the wood, and the ruler
and item being different lengths away from the camera lens also creates a perspective issue.
Note: Because of the way computers and cell phones are set to interpret colors that show on their monitors, and because of people’s perceptions of color descriptions, the colors you see on your screen may not be exactly the colors you will get but might appear a bit darker or lighter, or a shade or two different. I always do my best to show colors as close to reality as I can get them, but keep that in mind when you make your orders as, although I will accept returns for any reason, I WILL NOT accept a small difference in color shades as a valid reason for a ‘not as described’ claim so that you can save on shipping. Of course, if I say that something is black and it turns out to be red when you get it, then obviously the fault is mine and the ‘not as described’ claim will be accepted.
If you need to have a perfect match and can send a fabric swatch or paint chip, or something else that you have that shows the exact color that you need, I will be happy to hold the item you are thinking of purchasing so that you can send me your swatch or whatever for me to use to check for a match. I can photograph the item next to the color sample that you send and you can make your final decision as to whether you want to purchase from that.

I do accept returns for "not as discribed" items with one exception. Because of the variance of color shades due to lighting issues and the perceptions of different web browsers I will no longer accept an "it was not the right shade of color" as a valid reason for a "not as discribed" return. If you need to match something you already have I will work with you to see if my item is the same color shade that you need. Just send me a color swatch through the mail that is the exact color you need. I will photograph that swatch next to my item and you can make your decision from there. Of course, if I say something is blue and it turns out to be red, of course I will honor a 'not as described' claim I will refund shipping for valid "not as described' claims. To get a full refund, the item in question must be sent back to me unless I state differently. Shipping will be paid by the buyer for all returns with the exception of a verified 'not as described' claim.
