1940s Jorues Plastic Tile Clutch

Black Early Plastic Tile Clutch. 1940s. Plastic Designed by Jorues. Black plastic textured tile clutch purse. The tiles are laced together with what looks to be flat leather strips. Zip top with celluloid (or other early plastic) pull. Lined in black grosgrain. Inner pocket. Grosgrain over cardboard change purse with mirror and sewing needle inside.

I have this thing about textures, and I love the Lego-ness of this type of purse. Although, I admit, I’m not a huge fan of Legos themselves, mostly because I tend to discover them in the middle of the night, with my feet. (Thank you, grandson.)

I have a number of these purses (don’t ask me what the number is—I’d have to go into The Pink Room closet to count), and I usually forgo purchasing more of them due to price, but this lovely example sold for ten bucks with free shipping. And you know I can’t pass up a deal like that!
