Vintage 50s TELEPHONE CORDE CORD Coil Handbag Box Purse Rare Blue & White Colors
This is rectangular, with gold metal hardware. The strap is fairly short, attached with gold metal loops on either side. This is lined with blue faille with a mirror on the inside of the lid. The purse came with a hanky (slightly discolored), a matching change purse, and a matchbook, and I will include these. Measurements: 8" x 4 3/4" x 4 1/4" with a 16 1/2" strap. Condition: Very good - the handle has a crease in one side so it doesn't stand up straight unless it's being held (see photos). The mirror has been re-glued to the lid, and it's slightly crooked, which has resulted in the lid not being exactly flush against the body of the purse. It's not obvious and you might be able to reglue the mirror, but I don't dare try it! There are some chips in the mirror, and some glue has dripped down one side of the inside of the purse (see photos).
The best way to determine fit is to compare the measurements to a similar piece of clothing from your wardrobe. Proud member of the VFG - Vintage Fashion Guild.
