This purse was made in Italy of a shiny woven straw in a cocoa brown color. It is similar to a trunk as when it opens the sides come down and there is just one compartment. It is lined with a complementary colored fabric. There are four brass feet on the bottom. The brass hardware is in pretty nice condition with a few scratches here and there. There is very slight wear on the bottom corners. The bottom of the purse measures 9" X 4.75" and the height is 6".
