Anne-Marie of Paris white leather and gilt 'Hand of Cards' handbag.

About

Wonderful 'Hand of Cards' handbag by Anne-Marie, in white kid leather, with gilt highlights(suits of cards) and a clever clasp in the shape of a very realistic 'dice'. The bag is signed inside 'Anne-Marie, 228, Rue de Rivoli, Hotel Meurice, Paris.' This is a true collector's piece, in beautiful condition. Anne-Marie had a shop situated within the famous Hotel Meurice, on rue de Rivoli, Paris, opening in the late 1940s. She sold an assortment of accessories, including handbags, gloves, perfume and other more whimsical items. Always of a very high standard and quality, her designs incorporated every day objects and were very unusual and eye catching. The celebrated ‘Champagne Bucket’ handbag is probably the most well known.
