LAST CALL! 35% OFF! Offered is a good choice for a vintage tote to carry to the winter resort or the summer outing. Made in Japan, this is woven of chipped straw, The neutrality of the straw color makes the perfect background for the gold painted seashells, the gold beading, glitter and sequins and the sage tone of the chiffon and velvet rose. The rose is bordered by a cream tone and yellow center blossom. The handles are quite solid and are coiled with gold painted coils. The lining is in champagne moire satin. The purse closes at the back with a twisted cord that loops over a button. Measurements: 5 3/4" diameter of the base; 9 1/2" at its tallest; 14" across the widest and 20" around the handles. The interior carries a label Made in Japan. PLEASE NOTE: we found the following issues: the lining has some staining; careful pulling the twist cord for the closure--it springs back unto itself, it requires you to pull it straight; at the juncture where tabs at the top enclose the circular handles, there is some chipping of the straw; the bottom shows some soiling due to normal wear; there are pin holes in one of the petals of the chiffon rose. There may be beading, glitter, sequins and even possibly seashells missing, but we have not noted this, so it would not be obvious. Item 8350a
