Super special 1950s brass hinge purse with deco style clasp and celtic knot detail on the thick chain strap. Built to last with a sturdy brass exterior (shows great patina!) and strong blush grosgrain lining with thin gold piping. The inside is neatly organized with a brass compact and ridged brass cigarette case, both in their own loops, plus a few small pockets, and a tab for a tube of lipstick. The compact has their patented locking mechanism, along with a mirror and small makeup compartment inscribed with "English" inside - kinda funny, adds character ;). Incredible collectible piece. By Stratton, made in England, circa 1950s.
