<P>What a neat find. This purse/bag is from the estate of Frank Rivers, Manager of the Majestic Theater (No thew Schubert Theater) in Chicago
during its heyday from 1900-1930s.
<P>The styling on the purse itself dates it a little earlier than that time frame possibly. We are calling it Victorian or Edwardian.
<P>The purse is a sumptuous indigo blue velvet that is in just unbelievably soft condition. The two facades of the purse are lined in a very wide Asian style silk ribbon in a mostly gold color. The strap is a blue cording and is attached to the bag with some intricate knotting and tassels. The interior is lined in black. It appears that all pieces are original.
<P>This item is in excellent condition. Many items from this wealthy estate were in pristine condition - almost as if they were purchased, never used, put away for ever. Then the estate was put into storage ca. 1970 and wasn't opened and retrieved until 2004. This purse is no exception. It looks brand new. No rips, tears, stains or flaws. An excellent item.
<P>Please see photos.
<P>Please email with any questions.
