Anne-Marie Hand of Cards Handbag

About

Gaming theme handbag by Anne-Marie in the shape of a hand of cards. The bag is covered in black suede with gold-plated brass hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs. The clasp is a realistic game die. 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: 11.5" wide x 2.5" deep x 8.75" high, 15" high to top of handle Please contact us if you have any questions.
