   Vintage Round Celluloid Purse Frame Dated

   1920 Flapper Handbag Frame Mirrored Lid

Custom Search


This is another celluloid purse frames that I recently acquired. These frames are new, "old" stock, never used. This round celluloid purse frame comes from the 1920's era, it is dated on the interior, I could not get a clear photo but it is signed at the very edge of the frame, although the last number is missing, it says and represents, Pat'd April 25, 1922. This frame is in very nice condition, it is not all scratched up or abused and the interior of the lid is enhanced with a clear usable make-up mirror.



The coloring of this frame is a darker brown mixed with a molted amber tone, as shown. There is a permanently attached loop on the lid for accepting the black celluloid chain handle and the bottom edge of the frame has an adequate number of sew holes for attaching your purse and lining. The black celluloid closure on the frame is a tight spring mechanism that is in good working order. You must gently pull back the little ball to open and close the frame. It takes a little getting used to but it clasps shut snugly. The mechanics and the hinge of the frame are in solid order, without damage. This vintage round celluloid purse frame measures 3⅛ inches in diameter and I can fit my hand inside without hassle, it has a depth of inch and the chain handle drops the frame by 6 inches. The interior mirror is attached to the lid with a celluloid rim. The mirror is clear and usable with only minor aging at the very outer edge. Please consider adding your light weight flapper beaded bag to this frame or put your skills to work and create you own elegant silk purse.
