Extremely rare sugar bowl shaped handbag by Anne-Marie. The bag is covered in red leather with white painted wood sugar cubes and gold-plated tongs. The front has a label with "AM Paris" printed in gold. Anne-Marie had a shop within the famous Hotel Meurice in Paris where she sold gloves, bags, perfume and "frivolities".
