While similar in shape and sporting a Rialto latch like the example on pg. 35 top right of "Plastic Handbags" by Dooner, this bag has some interesting design additions. It is a substantially larger bag measuring 8 1/8" wide x 4 1/2" deep x 6.5" high. The body is variegated mid to dark gray with a definite horizontal direction to the swirl of the tones. This horizontal is accentuated by 4 horizontal ridges carved in the body and the bright horizontal edge of the 1/2" thick carved lucite top. This carving is done in a rather unique interlocking circle pattern quilters call "Robbing Peter to Pay Paul" (see detail picture.) The shape of the double handles is also quite unusual."

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID 960906). It sold for $170.00.
