This is an amazing 1920's molded bakelite purse frame showing a pair of very detailed crickets - symbols of serious good luck and prosperity. The curving details are of oriental style. Look closely at photo #3 which shows the semi precious tiger eye stone at the clasp release. The clasp closes with a securely tight "click."
The handle chain is also bakelite and original to the bag.
The color palette is of over dyed warm golds, orange, and a greenish beige.
No damages. No repairs.
I ship Priority Mail within the US and pack very carefully to avoid damage to this exceptional purse frame.
I ship Worldwide. Please contact me for shipping cost to your country.
******The cricket is a spirit or totem animal signifying good luck and prosperity.
