This dazzling vintage acrylic purse is from the fabulous Italian company Baulotto.
In Italian, the word baulotto translates literally to "trunk", which is definitely what this darling purse resembles.
The handbag has a unique opening feature. It opens from the top so the sides can open out. The sides are hinged on both sides.
The acrylic exterior has the most gorgeous tortoise-shell finish and elegant brass hardware.
Wide bands of brass embrace the purse lengthwise and around the middle where the lid closes in two equal parts.
Two simple rigid, brass handles make the handbag easy and comfortable to carry.
A simple loop closure keeps it securely shut. Small brass feet prevent scratching to the bottom of the purse.
As you can see, the interior is lined with rich, chocolate-brown vinyl with a cream-colored accent. A zippered pocket is the perfect size for your cash, cards of compact.
The maker's logo remains perfectly preserved on the vinyl and reads "Baulotto, Made In Italy".
Though there is some scratching to the brass and the bag shows some wear commensurate with its age, we are pleased to say that, overall, it is in very good condition.
This is an unusual bag and we especially love the way it opens. The color is a very dark greenish brown. It is not olive and it is not brown. It is a wonderful, neutral color.
