This is a gorgeous, simple little understated clutch bag made by Cordé. Cordé bags are collectable and sought after because they are beautifully and unusually made by the technique of winding gimp cord into a pattern and stitching it to a fabric base. This fabric was then used to make beautiful handbags which have proved to be very hardwearing. Some of the patterns are very intricate and add texture and design to an otherwise understated handbag. The main reason behind the use of this technique was the shortage of leather for making handbags during the war years but their popularity lasted even after the war had ended. They were worn by Hollywood stars of stage and screen 'back in the day' notably by Joan Crawford and they were not just evening bags, they were worn as smart day bags too. This one is delightful, it is a simple clutch, in a quintessentially 40s design, in excellent condition with the original lucite clear zip pull with a stylised flower in it. The inside is lined in a silky black fabric which is spotless with no marks or stains. There is one slip pocket. The fabric label with the name Cordé is sewn into the side seam of the bag.

This bag could easily have been listed on the clutch bags page as it is a very stylish occasion bag as well as an evening bag. It is classic and classy and surprisingly capacious for a small elegant clutch. It is also eminently collectable. We love it. Perfect gift for her.

​It is 10" x 5"
