Anne-Marie Champagne Bucket Handbag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Wonderful handbag by Anne-Marie in the shape of a champagne bucket with ice and champagne bottle. The bag is covered in black suede with gold-plated brass hardware and bottle top. The realistic ice is made of rough cut chunks of lucite. The bucket has a label printed in gold paint that says "Champagne Reims France", and the bottle has a label that reads "Sec".

Anne-Marie had a shop within the famous Hotel Meurice in Paris where she sold gloves, bags, perfume and "frivolities". She is best known for the wonderfully detailed, surrealist figural handbags that she designed and sold in the post-WWII era. These days, her handbags are very delicate and are better suited for display than for carrying.

approximate measurements:
7.5" wide x 4" deep x 8" high (to top of ice), 10.75" high to top of handle
