SKU : es-562816301 Category : Top Handle Bags

This 1940’s era off-white Beadline enamel mesh bag features a bold purse frame
and chain link handle made of celluloid, an early plastic.

The handbag is 8" inches wide and 7" inches long across the bottom. The purse
frame is 9 1/4" inches across and the chain link handle is 9” inches long. The
celluloid handle is a prefect length to comfortably be held on your wrist.

The interior fabric lining is intact but shows its age. The lining is browning
a bit but it has no tears in the fabric. The interior section is 6" inches deep
and opens 5” wide by 5 1/2" inches across. This handbag is in good overall

The label is missing but it is my opinion that this handbag was manufactured
by Whiting & Davis, designed by Schiaparelli. Their advertising ads with the
slogan "Hand in Hand with Fashion." in Harper's Bazaar Magazine between 1937
and 1939 shows bags similar to this one.
