My jaw just dropped when I first saw this bag. The color, molding and lid trim are unlike anything I|ve ever seen! It had kind of a Byzantine look. This bag in Jet Black is illustrated on page 28 of "Carry Me" by Janice Berkson as is the ad for the bag from "Handbags & Accessories" March 1953, pg 28. The style was named Candle Twist Cube. It’s ample in size, measuring 8 x 5 3/4 x 4 1/2". Beautiful milky cocoa color had some beautiful rose pink overtones and the texture of a fine book endpaper! Lid is reverse carved in small flower and leaf groups. And the crowning touch to the 1/2" thick top is a carved Lucite applique on top! Much heavier than most. This bag sold for $270 min 1998.

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID 980236). It sold for $270.00.
