This is a decoupage Wooden Box Purse With Lucite, Lucite like or plastic amber colored handle. The inside cover states it was made by Linda Briggs 1971.

This is a vintage wooden box purse. My on line research leads me to believe these boxes were very popular from the 1950's into the 1970's and were possibly sold as kits. However, there are also vintage box purses in the market place which purport to be produced by individuals as name brands.

We know from the interior inscriptions. that this purse was was crafted by Linda Briggs in 1971. The outside of dark colored wooden purse has adorable decoupage prints. The inside has a green and white plaid material. It has a mixed amber tone plastic or lucite handle. the hinges and closure snap clasp are brass.

Dimensions (approximate):

Length: 8 inches
Height: 5 inches
Width: 5 1/4 inches ( at midsection)

Handle Drop: 5 inches to top of box

Condition:

This box is in very good condition. It has no cracks, peeling, or breaks in the wood. The hinges and closure clasp function properly. The interior is clean and the lining is snugly affixed to the base and sides of the interior. However, like any bag or box over 40 years old it does show some wear. There are nicks, scuffs, scratches and spots on the surface. Please see photos for condition and ask for more if you need them.

If you prefer a different style vintage bag, I have many in stock and you can see it at my shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/ProVintageGear
