Beautiful white canvas and raffia handbag has a clear plastic front, behind which bloom a number of pale pink and white flowers with a few green leaves; because this is shiny, it's hard to photograph, which is one reason why you have so many pretty pictures to look at!
The back, which is also covered with clear plastic, is plain, showing just the stripes of the material from which it is made.
Beautifully clean inside and out, it has an unused feel - certainly it carries its age with grace, with no signs of age or wear. It fastens with this very sweet little button and loop arrangement.
I always hesitate to describe any vintage item as 'perfect' - age alone generally means it can be no such thing - but if there is a better looked-after and preserved handbag out there, I have yet to see it! Approximate measurements: width, 10 to 12 ½ inches (32 to 52.5 cms); depth, 9 ¼ inches (23.5 cms); base, 3 inches (7.5 cms) across.
Princess Mimi believes that you can only feel confident
about buying lovely things on the internet if you can have a really good look at them. Here
are all the pictures she has of this item - as usual, clicking on any picture will produce a large
version of the picture - some of the files can be quite large....
