Black Suede Handbag Shaped Like a Crate of Champagne Bottles

About

This wonderful figural handbag is shaped like a wooden crate with 3 champagne bottles sticking out of the top. Made from a fine black suede, the crate has a label on the front stamped "CHAMPAGNE", and the bottles are marked "BRUT", "SEC", and "DOUX", all in gold paint. The suede top handle is attached on the sides of the crate. I have never seen this handbag before. The construction and details are quite similar to those of the champagne bucket handbags of Anne-Marie, which suggests that it may be an unsigned Anne-Marie bag. 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: 10" wide x 3" deep x 9" high (including bottles), 13" high to top of handle Please contact us if you have any questions.
