This charming little vintage summertime novelty purse has a wound white rope covered body and a wooden lid and bottom painted sky blue. The lid is topped with two huge fabric roses: one in tangerine, the other in lush sage green.
The curved handle is clear lucite.
The interior has an adorable umbrella print in red and black on white.
The base of this basket purse measures 6 1/4" by 4 1/4".
It is 4" to the top of the lid, which measures 8" by 6".
The handle is 13 1/2" up and over which adds about 5" (for shipping purposes).
Estimated vintage 1960s, but could be earlier.
Condition: very good, with only slight wear to the bottom corners with a tiny chip out of one. There are some ink marks and light spots on the lining: this is not visible when carried. The rope covering is more of a creamy white than a pure snow white, but we love it just as it is.
