BLUE NEEDLEPOINT HANDBAG W/RABBITS

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Tapestry and needlepoint handbags, so popular in the 1950s and '60s, are back in fashion. Here is a wonderful version from the 1960s in an unusual color, a beautiful medium blue, with matching leather trim. The floral needlepoint incorporates two animated rabbits done in petitpoint; the design is the same on both sides. A sophisticated brass frame with closure that opens by pushing the two tabs together offsets the needlepoint. The interior is royal blue leather and contains its own change purse and mirror.
Frame stamped "MADE IN GERMANY".
