Vintage 1960s Caron of Houston Orange Crochet Raffia Handbag Purse w/ Lucite Handles
Vintage mid-1960s crocheted raffia handbag from Caron of Houston in a vibrant orange color features matching lucite handle and trim and an airy, popcorn texture.
Lined in a crisp citrus-colored rayon with one zip sidewall pocket, the purse closes with a knobbed “kiss lock” clasp. The frame and hardware are goldtone metal.
Label reads “Caron Original of Houston, Texas”. Known mainly for their hand-decorated fabric or straw examples, Caron purses came on the scene c.1959 and were sold widely through the 1960s. Crocheted raffia purses (from by a variety of manufacturers) became popular during the same period.
Measuring 7.5” high, 11” wide, and 5.5” across the bottom, the purse has a 12.5” handle.
Excellent condition, with no flaws to note.
