This is an incredibly cool vintage wicker basket purse by Lesco Lona. I have never seen a wicker purse shaped like this one...it is just adorable. The bag is 13" tall and graduates in length from approximately 5 1/4" to 8" at its longest point and 5 1/2" D. So at a glance the purse appears extremely tall and narrow. When you see it from the side, however, you can see this sleek looking "little" purse is actually quite roomy.
The exterior of the purse features white wicker, double horseshoe handles, a twist clasp and four brass pegged feet. The exterior is in excellent condition. The inside is a bit battle scarred with white spots on the vinyl. There is an interior zip pocket with a fabric label that reads "Made in Hong Kong exclusively for Lesco Lona". This is a very classy and stylish vintage purse.
