This is a great vintage wooden Box Purse. It is 8-sided, with 2 clear Lucite handles and light gold tone hardware and feet. The bag has been painted by hand, I believe in the 1970s. One of the things I like best about this bag is that it sits on a table well, and doesn't have to be flipped in some direction in order to open it. The background is a medium/light warm blue. The main design (different on each side) has to do with Red Birds and White Flowers with black and gray branches and green leaves. Each end of the bag has one white flower blossom with leaves, which splits in the middle when the bag is opened. The lining is a darkened cream color canvass held at both ends with lines of brass tacks. The lining is extraordinarily clean. The original paint job has held up very well. Some of the edges and corners have taken hits over time, but nothing that's distracting. There are actually 2 black lines on the back (single bird side) of the bag above the flowers on the right hand side (see photo 2) and some small black dots below the center of the right hand flower extending down to the left towards the cardinal. The dots almost all fall below the normal range of vision for this bag, but the 2 black lines are not. Because the black lines are the same color as the branches, I don't think they attract much attention. You decide. All in all, this is a nice hand painted vintage purse. Painter's mark is in photo 5. Could be HA.S. or 7A.S., or possibly something else. It measures 8" long 5 1/4"H x 5"W - NOT INCLUDING handles. If you add handles, height is about 9". It weighs about a pound, and because it will need a fair sized box, I have set this listing up for US customers only. If shipping costs are less than charged by an amount of OVER $1.00, I will refund any difference in even dollar amounts to the buyer once I have shipped the item.
If you have questions, please contact me.
