An antique French shopping parcel handle which dates to the turn of the century C. 1900. Made out of thick card with a printed advertisement and wire work hooks this lovely little accessory is a wonderful reminder of halcyon days.

It bears the advertisement for a shop named after the famous Gallery in Paris, La Louvre.

'Au
LOUVRE
* PARIS *'

These handles were originally used to carry your shopping parcels via the hooks to make your purchases more manageable. At the time they were given to customers not only to ease their journey home, but also as advertising. They are relatively rare these days due to their original utilitarian purpose, but do however make wonderful accessories to your crafts and projects.

The bamboo portion of the handle measures 3 & 1/4 of an inch long, by ½ an inch in diameter.
