Anne-Marie Sugar Bowl Handbag

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

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". 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:
6.25" wide (8.5" wide including the handles) x 3.75" deep x 8" high, 10" high to top of handle

Please contact us if you have any questions.
