History Of The Garment 

1940s evening bags closely resembled shoulder bags, except they were smaller and made of different materials. Small evening purses were made of satin, silky wool, or rayon velvet. Sparkling brocade and black felt with a glint clasp were also common evening purse designs. Also popular for the evening were elegant shell or scallop shaped bag. This bag had a wide round bottom that gathered to a smaller top with a handle.  Ruching pleats echoed the shell texture and added to the elegance of the design.
