BEADED POODLE Vintage 1950s Rhinestone & Lucite Wicker Purse

This killer late vintage 1950's\/early 1960's handbag is made of white wicker and features moonglow lucite handles, trim & closure. Goldtone metal hardware, vinyl lining has a metal-zippered pocket inside. The purse measures 11.5" across and 4" wide. It stands 12.5" high from base to top of handle.

One entire side of the purse has a burlap backdrop with a black felt poodle. The poodle is decorated in black & white seed beads, gold glitter, a google eye, red felt collar (with rhinestones on the collar) and finished with a gold cord leash. A panel of clear vinyl lays on top. Gold lurex ribbon is glued all the way around, framing it. The tag attached to the inside pockets reads "Tropic Miami, Florida".

The box purse, although beyond fabulous, is flawed. Almost all of the flaws are cosmetic & the purse is perfectly usable right now with no repair work needed! Here's the list of issues~

*The hardware that holds the handles to the purse is loose.

*The vinyl lining is ripped & no matter how many times I used Lysol on it, is still ink-stained.

*The "gold" to the metal is almost all scratched off and you can see most of the silver metal now

*The glue from the gold ribbon has turned black with age and shows.

*One of the rhinestones is missing from the collar under the vinyl cover! I'm not sure where it could've gone, unless it's wedged underneath the felt! Weird.

*Because of it's size\/weight, the purse will have to be sent via Priority Shipping (with tracking) in flat-rate boxes. It'll be most cost-effective that way as well, especially to my overseas friends!
