Some designers just know how to do it. Paloma Picasso is one of a few. Known for her iconic "kisses"(XXX's) handbags that she designed for Tiffany's, Paloma Picasso showed her creativity and talent by designing a few purses that were unusual and different. These purses are rare and not easily found. However, each of these rare finds are striking and inventive. This purse is one of them. It has a "surrealist" vibe and yet it is chic and sophisticated. It is circa 1980's. It is small and has a solid structure. It is made of a black silk grosgrain and is trimmed with a thin gold leather binding. It is the unusual shape that is statement making. Being hard to describe in words (a picture is worth a thousand words) the bottom part is bucket shaped. There is a large modified fleur de lis or spade shape protruding upwards in the middle. So simple yet so clever! That's it....and yet it is striking and head turning. The bag closes with a snap and there is a black grosgrain carry strap with a drop of 19". There is an inside zipper with a silk toggle ball that also closes the bag. "Paloma Picasso" is imprinted in gold inside the bag and there is a sewn in label stating "Made in Italy." The inside is very clean. The measurements of the bag are 6"w x 8"h x 1"d. The bag is in great condition with only wear indications on the flat bottom to note. If you like purses that are different and convey a sense of artistry, this Paloma Picasso bag is for you. Wonderful, wonderful! Condition: Excellent Vintage Condition
