This is a vintage chenille "carpet" bag handbag tapestry purse with rare colors. It features a stunning color combination of very vivid colors which is hard to find in a chenille purse. They are usually muted earth tones or fewer colors. The design is very abstract and unique. It measures 6 1/2" at the top and 8" at the bottom, by 6 1/2" from closure to bottom. It has a double kiss opening, with a double chain. It is in excellent condition save for one spot along the inside edge where there it is stapled on each side. It is very neatly done, probably to keep the lining in place-see pics. No rips or stains. Really fun and pretty! Perfect for fall!
