Vintage Old New Orleans handbag, celluloid and decals. This 8 sided unusual purse is made of painted wood, with decals on the sides, covered in celluloid. The decals depict what seem to be three scenes from Old New Orleans. The handle could be bakelite but I have never tested it during the many years I have owned this. It is lined with a flocked material, in good condition but the top inside edge of lid shows wear. There is a chip on one side and on the bottom, otherwise condition is good. Hinges show oxidation, clasp works but is a loose fit. Measures 8 inches front to back, 7 inches across, 5.75 inches deep. I do not know if the price on bottom was the original price or was at a later sale. There is also what may be a worn painted signature on bottom. This makes a wonderful display piece due to its shape and colors.
