Vintage 40s Beaded Koret Handbag Art Deco Pocketbook w/Change Purse Bag
Shiny jet black seed beads are featured on this vintage cocktail style beaded handbag by Koret with attached change purse within, circa 1940s.
The elegant and softly flexible Art Deco bag is completely covered in black glass seed beads with a single 1-inch thick handle, and off centered metal zippered closure with matching beaded pull tag.
It is fully lined within and includes inner side pockets – one which holds a petite change purse as shown. The change purse has a kissing clasp and an interior divider with gold colored trim for keeping change separate, and is attached to the inside of the larger handbag by a thin gold plated chain.
The bag in its entirety measures approximately 9 inches wide by 7 inches high, top to bottom (excluding strap), with the strap measuring about 16&3/4 inches in length – and is gold stamped “Koret” within along with the company’s leaping gazelle logo.
