If you love colorful purses, then this is the purse for you. However, although the colors are very striking, they are soft and serene and are "not in your face." The purse was created by the Rodo brand founded over sixty years ago by Romualdo Dori. The firm started out with the production of wicker and straw handbags. This were exclusively hand woven. They expanded their brand by including day and evening bags, leather and metal accessories and a wide range of footwear. They are still known for their craftsmanship, creativity and quality. The purse has linear lines as well as curves. It slightly "bows" outwards. It is medium size. It is made from wicker strips which are dyed and woven. This process begins with wetting the wicker which results in the wicker becoming pliable and capable of being woven. The weaving is done in an "over and under" pattern. The colors are lime green, bubble gum pink, grape purple and Christmas red. These colors come together to create a palette which is calm and relaxed yet dynamic in its own manner. The surround of the front and the back are crafted into a decorative trim. The closure is a red leather tab which comes from the back. It ends in an oval accent which has shiny gold metal horizontal lines and the snap closure is on the underside. There is a lovely gold link chain with a drop of 20". The chain can be tucked away inside using Rodo's internal hardware. The purse then is converted to a clutch. The inside is lined with a faux black on black Rodo fabric. There is an open slip pocket lined in gold lame. The gold metal identification plaque stating "Rodo Italy" is affixed inside. The inside is very clean looking as though the bag was never used. The measurements are 10"w x 6"h x 2"d. The bag is in great condition. The oval closure is slightly skewed but you really need to look for it to see it. It is mentioned for accuracy. Otherwise, the bag is in fabulous condition without vintage indications. A colorful well made purse to brighten up your day! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
