Betty Boop made her debut in Max Fleischer’s 1930 cartoon , the sixth episode of his Talkartoon series produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures.She also appeared in print in the comic section of a few newspapers starting in July 1934, but the comic strip never achieved the popularity of her cartoons.However, the cartoon character, Betty Boop, was an even bigger box office draw than many of the flesh and blood actors. And she was so popular that her likeness became one of the most frequently used images in mass merchandising during the Depression era.Betty’s image was licensed for a wide range of products including nail polish, cigarette cases, dolls, playing cards, and metal mesh purses.We have your collectible vintage idea guide right here for creative and warm ambiance, and a festive feel this New Year.
Apparently relatively few of these bags were made and even fewer remain after eighty-odd years.
The criss cross ball catch is tight and the vintage purse has a pale yellow silk moire lining with the original Whiting & Davis cloth label as well as the engraved logo on the frame.
The purse is in very good condition with a few minor signs of use on the frame and a bit of soiling to the lining.
