This amazing "so ugly that it's beautiful" purse is late 50's-1960's from Veldore, Houston, TX. Label says "hand decorated original".....that's for sure. It features a needlepoint floral design with beads and cabs glued on. I LOVE IT for many reasons - #1 a dear friend from Texas gave me this. It belonged to her grandmother and was never used, but a perfect gift to me!
There are some Veldores online, but not with velvet fabric or as perfect. Large 14"x11"x4" snap framed black velvet w/satin lining. #2 - the design and colors of course!, #3 - big enough to put a pair of flip-flops in if my 60's kitten heels start barking....and (last, not least) it's quite a conversation starter or ender if I had to swing it.....I would not, just sounds good.
