Three-Way Convertible Lumured Purse(s)
Three-Way Convertible Lumured Purse(s). 1960s. Maker: Lumured. This set consists of two bags; one can be turned inside out for the third bag. One side has the primary colored “candy dot” or “caviar” beads, and the other has pastel colored opaque beads. There’s another bag inside that has white and clear beads (note: the brown part is probably water damage). The white plastic handles unscrew to go on either of the three choices of handbag. Inside the white and clear beaded bag is a heavy cotton lining. Zip closure.
I’ve seen a lot of Lumured bags and have a few more, including one that’s reversible. This one is pretty special in that there are three bags to choose from—a very clever design!
