Charming vintage octagonal wooden purse decorated on the top and sides with decoupage 18th century nautical scenes featuring fully rigged ships bearing the French flag. The purse has an amber colored lucite handle, decorative brass hinges, and a closes in the front with a brass latch. The entire interior is finished with chocolate brown felt trimmed with cream rope intertwined with golden seed beads. The bottom exterior of the purse is varnished wood and has four small wooden ball feet to prevent scuffing.

The purse measures approximately 10” long, 6.5” wide and stands 6” tall, and is about 10.5” high when the handle is extended. The handle itself is 5.5” wide, and the interior of the base is 4” deep.

This beautiful purse is in great vintage condition. It has minor surface wear and exhibits slight yellowing to the varnish, as to be expected given the age of the piece. There is one very small area of paint loss on the rear of the bag but it is a minor flaw and does not detract from the overall appearance of the bag. This is a real conversation piece and would be a fantastic addition to any vintage purse collection.
