Vintage 30s Black Velvet Cocktail Bag & Coin Purse with Rhinestone Novelty Clasp
So charming and elegant is this vintage Art Deco cocktail bag, in a plush black velvet with novelty rhinestone belt buckle clasp and interior coin purse, circa 1930s.
The petite evening style handbag consists of a soft black velvet or velvetine body with a single velvet fabric handle, rigid frame, and novelty clasp in the form of a miniature belt with buckle, channel set with clear faceted baguette rhinestones and tiny marcasites.
The hinged clasp lifts up to release, and then back down for locking into place, and has a 1920s patent date of “PAT. 8-26-24” on the back as shown.
The bag also contains a fixed coin purse within, attached through a center bar, along with an inside side pocket and full satin lining within.
It measures just under 7 inches across at its widest point by approximately 6&1/4 inches high, from center of frame to base.
Very good condition, both front and back, with all flocking intact.
