Plastic Covered Purse with Square Dance Motif. 1950s. Maker: Soure. Ivory-colored fabric tote-style bag with intricate drawings of 19th century square dancers. The front has two ladies centered with their gentlemen off to the sides. The women’s prairie dresses and the men’s jeans are embellished with raffia. There are also decorative beads, buttons and rhinestones, and the bag features musical notes and partial lyrics. The back of the purse has a man and a woman dancing. Even the bottom of the bag shows partial pictures of a dancing couple. Plastic handles and an ivory-colored interior. Interior zip pocket and interior open pocket. Some yellowing and cracking due to age.

This is my most recent acquisition and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I love Soure bags, and this is one I’ve never seen before. That doesn’t mean others like it don’t exist, but if I’ve never seen it, then there can’t be too many out there. Let me know if you have one, too!
