Oh, our (grand)mothers had some lovely handbags to strut around with! But aren't you the lucky one? Because so can you! How do you fancy this little sweetie dangling elgantly from your white-gloved wrist?
Very much a box bag, it's made from bamboo tiles; the handle is made from smaller tiles, interspersed with white beads, giving it great flexibility. It's a bag for the sunshine; but then, it's always summer somewhere!
Although it's never been used, the cotton lining is marked, showing the pattern of the tiles on the outside, the result of its age; apart from that, it is in excellent condition.
Unlike some box bags, the handle is fixed to the sides, not the the top/lid - which fastens with this bamboo lozenge - so it is quite secure. It really is a delightful little thing! Approximate measurements: 7¼ ins wide x 3¾ ins deep x 3¾ ins high (19.5 cms x 9.5 cms x 8 cms). Do contact us if you would like any more information.
