This beauty is from the 1940's and is called a "dance purse"
because of the the 1' wide black velvet strap attached in the back.
The women would slide her hand though to keep it secure as she
danced the night away. Made of black velvet it is embellished in
black jet beading and bugle beading. It is a clutch style with a snap
closure. It is completely lined in satin with a gold decorative flap in
the back. It can hold your cell phone!
