I love this beautiful ca 1930s-1940s purse. Does anybody know what kind of material was used to make the gems on the lid? Poured glass?

    Hello FineLines. Thanks for the fast response. You're so sweet... I'll see if I can post additional pics tomorrow, including the close up of the gems on top. They're so beautiful...

    Thank you for the link, FineLines. Lovely bag! Very interesting shape. I'll check out this site. Looks like a very good source of period ads. I have a couple of Evans bag ads and also their bags, but I haven't seen this particular bag ad before (here's a link:!__main-page). Very nice, thanks.

    Sorry for the double post - it seems like the link did not go through. I'll repeat it, if it's OK. Here it is:!__main-page
