Art Deco Vintage Cord and Bakelite Handbag, circa 1930

About the Item

For your consideration is this wonderfully stylish English ladies handbag made from cord with a butterscotch coloured catalin Bakelite clasp. This is a totally authentic bag in a wonderful Art Deco shape which dates to the late 1930s-1940s. The interior is lined in brown silk with an inner purse with chrome clasp and still with it's original mirror compartment pouch. Condition is as good as you could possibly hope for from a bag this age. It shows virtually no wear at all, it's certainly minimal and needs to be inspected closely to see anything at all and is free from any odour, even the chrome is sparkling and not tarnished, possibly a bag that's never been used. Ideal for daytime and evening.

  • Art Deco Bakelite "Fish Themed" Still Bank, American, circa 1930
    Located in Incline Village, NV
    This very unique still bank is a "must have" for the discerning still bank collector, in that it is made of bakelite, in addition to it having a fish theme; only a couple of other banks depict a fish. American and probably manufactured around circa 1930, (making it an Art Deco piece), this pre-war bank, though unmarked, is undoubtedly a bakelite product; that company having been formed in 1922, utilizing the discovery and patent of bakelite in 1907 and 1909 respectively. Art Deco collectors would find this piece highly decorative and "period" compatible. This fish bank is in excellent and all original condition. The bank is rare in and of itself, but another element that makes it particularly scarce is the fact that, other than the old "knife in the slot" there was no way to remove the coins once the bank was filled without smashing it apart and destroying it. Great gift for that February/March pisces birthday. Dimensions: 8 1/4" long x 5" high x 2 1/8" wide Note:I am a leading specialist in the field of vintage coin banks...
