I have a vintage handbag with the outside being a cotton cloth in a Victorian style.  I would estimate that this dates somewhere between the 1920's - 1950's or so.  The base of the bag measures about 19" at the base give or take a bit (I did not flatten this out I measured it as it naturally falls) x about 11 1/2" in length.  The top metal ornate closure measures about 11 1/2" across.  There is a chain around the top which measures about 18 1/2" from side to side.  The top clasp lifts and the purse opens in a diamond form on the top.  The inside is brown silk in good condition.  The metal rim and clasp have some scratching on them.  The fabric on the outside of the purse is in good condition but does have a few light brown stains which I showed an example of in my photo's.
