Whenever I don my fur stole and feathered hat, I pick up one of these bags, wince at the weight of the glass beads, place my lace hanky and silver compact inside, and skip off to the opera.

    If the usher doesn't show you to the right seat you could clock him a good one. Very pretty - love to see old handbags on CW. A friend of mine used to look inside the vintage ones at the goodwill. Well, yeah we do that to see the condition but no he said "I'm looking to see if there's a dime in it. My mom always kept a dime for phone calls in all her handbags." And yes, he found a dime inside.

    he found a dime inside from time to time. I cut myself off.

    Great story thanks Valentino. I have checked and the only thing in them was a bit of lint! Rats.

    Thanks Lisa!
    A zebra beaded bag sounds awesome....I would actually be more likely to use that than these. I can't carry off the class look.....more clown style really!

    Absolutely beautiful purses! Do you know what era they are from?
  17. racer4four racer4four, 3 years ago
    Thanks Elisabeth and Vintagepursefan!

    These bags are from the 50s maybe early 60s, and probably made in Hong Kong.
