1940s Rare Zippered Dog Clutch

Regular price $88.00 Sale

Super rare and incredibly fun 1940s dusty red clutch fashioned in the shape of a dog and featuring a zippered compartment on the top. I love the surrealism of this piece, as most of these animal purses were made to look like realistic stuffed animals -- but this homemade clutch shirks the main trend in favor of a fun, unusual pop of color and simple construction. Pair with your strangest 40s novelty prints or add a touch of whimsy to a black silk gown. Please note this clutch won't fit much -- maybe a small tube of lipstick, single key or tiny pot of poison. Interior pocket lined, zipper closure. {This could maybe be fashioned after a pig? But the trend certainly skewed toward dogs, so I'm going with dog!}

All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
