Vintage Clutch Purse, Help Needed!
I need help!
I bought a vintage clutch purse at Goodwill, and I want to find out what year it's from!
There is a picture of it here:
That's my blog, sorry to have to direct you there. If you need better picture of it, just tell me and I'll post them.
My mom that the inside was silk, but honestly it felt a bit more like satin to me. It is an eggshell/cream color with white seed beads, longer metallic greyish beads, and obviously aged thread. There is a tarnish on the chain and a little bit on the clasp, but it's mostly in perfect condition. The rim also has some pretty engraving of a random pattern on it. The back of it has a bit of discoloration, and is just a 3d polka dot pattern created by the white seed beads.
My thought was the 1960s or 50s, but I really have no idea.
Any help would be great!
does it have any labels inside indicating a brand??
If it's unlabeled its going to be harder to date but try to figure out the materials of the bag... like are the beads glass or acrylic? And does it look hand or machine stitched? Its more likely to be the era you're thinking if so... And its a long shot but does the clasp have any markings or stamps?
I wish. That would have made my life so much easier.
Hmmm from pictures I've seen it looks like its 50's-60's but I guess there's no real way of telling without a label or an expert
So I had no luck with yours but maybe you could help me with mine? I just picked this pretty tapestry snap clutch up at a vintage shop. I've looked around and found a few similar on Etsy all claiming to be from anywhere between 50's to the 70's, but nothing identical. Plus the ones on Etsy, in addition to having a different pattern, have different chains and no tags inside like mine. I can't find the origin of the label at all... I'm curious to know the age, if I had to guess I'd say 70's or 80's but I have no clue.
