Hand-painted Floral Trunk-Style Purse. Maker: Lily-Bet – Filbert Imports – of the Palm Beaches. 1960s. Adorable white vinyl box purse with hand-painted pink, green and blue floral design. Thick clear plastic handle and goldtone closure. The inside is lined in dramatic gold fabric with paisley-like swirls and gold trim, which does not match the flowery outside one bit, which makes me think the paint job might have been added later. No matter. Still cute. And roomy enough for a cell phone AND a lipstick, which a lot of box purses aren’t.
