Art Deco Celluloid Handbag Frame - 1930s Purse Frame - Antique Evening Purses(ON HOLD)

 Art Deco handbags from France were some of the most beautiful in the 1920s and 1930s.  Here we have a handbag or purse frame made of the early plastic material Celluloid.  This bag frame is black in colour and has been decorated with lots of sparkling diamante jewels and little silver pins set into it.  There are all the jewels and pins still in place and there are three half circle panels making a decoration on one side of the frame and a band of diamante and silver pin around the button closure on top.  The other side of this art deco purse frame is completely plain - just a nice shiny black in colour. The French made particularly stylish jewellery, hat pins and other items out of early plastic materials using this inlaid diamante and silver pin technique in the Art Deco era.   The purse frame would certainly have been for evening or occasion wear.  I don't know if it once held a beautiful hand beaded evening purse with tassles or some sumptuous soft silk velvet purse.   Now it would be perfect for a bag of your own design.  It would be fairly easy to attach a bag to the frame as there is a row of holes all around to allow a bag to be stitched into place.  There are also two rings attached to the top to enable you to attach a strap, handle or chain suitable for the bag. This  Art deco gem is a very collectable purse frame, in excellent condition with no cracks or chips, there are small surface scratches that only prove it is an early piece and do not detract in any way from its beauty or function.  This bag frame has a strong, functioning closure device which works by pushing down the button for releasing and closing your handbag.  Measurements are 6 inches across, 4 inches from top or button to edge of frame and when fully opened out the inside diameter of the bag frame is 5 inches
