1940s Plastic Tile Purse

Plastic Tile Clutch. 1940s. Maker: Jorues. Raised ivory-colored plastic tiles comprising a large clutch bag. Held together by light brown leather cording, which you can see through the tiles. Lined in brown fabric. Plastic zipper. Brown ribbon at the sides; one of which seems to have come loose, possibly because someone used it as a handle.

I particularly love purses with shape and dimension. These Jorues bags are similar to Plasticflex purses of the same era. The second pic shows more of my mini-collection.
