Walborg Unusual Copper Clad and Lucite Bag


Unusual hard bag by Walborg of martele burnt orange lucite hand "clad" with copper Art and Crafts patterns. Extremely strange and ugly in a 70's mash up way, almost like a light fixture with a handle. When light hits the transluscent lucite the bag glows and the copper patterning reveals itself.The process of hand "cladding" the lucite is laborious and similar to how sterling is overlaid on glass on period silver overlay glassware. One small section of loss on back, right. Otherwise excellent condition. 6" x 4" plus 3" handle.
