Brown Soft Fabric Purse with Suede Floral Appliques. 1960s. Maker: Soure Bag New York. Soft, suede-like brown fabric Kelly-style bag with suede floral and leaf appliques. The flowers, stems and leaves are stitched to the bag and there are metal balls and metal floral center details. Two inner pockets, one zip. One of the pockets holds a mirror, still wrapped in its original cardboard, never used.
Soure is one of my favorite designers. This purse is so much more special in person than in the picture. The artist put a lot of love and care into the design. Best of all, it’s in near-mint condition and doesn’t appear to have ever been used.
