Materials

wicker, elastic, celluloid button

Rare vintage 1950s Mid Century wicker elephant purse, Made from brown woven wicker. Up turned trunk, 2 wooden tusks, black and white painted eyes. Big floppy ears. Opens on top with elastic loop and I think celluloid button. Braided tail, double handle top.

Condition: Very good vintage condition, Wicker in nice condition, nothing missing, slight overall signs of use. I did repair to top hinge on lid, I braided waxed thread and painted to closer match the lower original hinge. Lid opens and closes easily with care. Back right leg is up, like she's dancing.
Maker: unmarked
Size: Measures 16" tall at trunk, 15" tall at handles, 16" long trunk to tail, 6" wide ear to ear.
