Dark Brown Corde Bag. 1940s. Maker: Genuine Corde, Ador Bag Co. Rich, dark brown-bordering-on-black cord fabric bag with interesting geometric pattern on the front. I have a small collection of Corde handbags and this is one of my older and more ornate ones. In the picture, it’s hanging on my Victorian-era brass dining room mirror, but I usually keep it in my bedroom, on a wrought iron Moorish-style decorative holder, with another Corde bag and the cut velvet bag from the previous post. Purses make great art!
