We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration an absolutely FABULOUS VINTAGE LADY'S WICKER PURSE!
With a charming KITSCH & COUTURE type appeal, we have never had or seen another one quite like it, and fell in love with it's BASKET SHAPE and eccentric faux miniature FRUIT & VEGETABLE embellishment!
Originally from the 1940's to 50's, it is extremely WELL MADE and is sure to please the most ADVANCED COLLECTOR of vintage lady's handbags!
Wonderfully created of STURDY WICKER with a thick WOODEN LID, the purse measures 10" wide, 6" deep and 5" tall; 11" high including it's square handle! The lid of the purse has a COLORFUL BOUQUET of wonderful miniature faux fruits and vegetables including apples, oranges, bananas, lemons, tomatoes, carrots, peaches and pears------an ARTISTIC ARRAY of tiny treats! When opened, the purse reveals it's original RED COTTON fabric lining on the bottom compartment, and it's original rectangular shaped MIRROR purposefully positioned askew on the right side of the inside lid! With the exception of some wear to a few of the fruit and vegetable pieces, the purse is in EXCELLENT CONDITION ready for wear or display in a collection!
We are showing it for scale purposes displayed next to a 16" antique French Fashion doll who is not from the same era but appreciates the FABULOUS WORKMANSHIP of this one-of-a-kind piece!
