The clutch bag made its debut in the 1930s and enjoyed great popularity in the 1940s (encouraged by wartime metal shortages). This is one of those very early clutches, which makes it an excellent investment piece. It's also one of the showiest evening purses around and of a good useful size: almost 9 by 5 inches.

Acquired in England, the bag is definitely European and has a Spanish look, courtesy of all that gold brain and beading on lush white and black velvet. Even the carrying strap on reverse is ornamented. The roomy black satin interior is divided into three compartments for easy organization of your wallet, cell phone and other essentials. In superb condition, with no damage apparent even on close inspection, it's really a gem!
