Needlepoint Handbag. Maker: Kurt Chambré. 1960s. Evening bag covered entirely in needlepoint; black background with flowers and leaves on both sides. Heavy gold damascene-style enclosure with goldtone chain. Black “feet” on the bottom. What’s most fascinating about this is that I inherited it from my grandma and I kept the contents intact! Here they are: Black satin change purse with 46 cents; three Riopan antacids, still wrapped in plastic; one goldtone ballpoint pen with George of California, Inc.—Blouses & Ladies Sportswear logo. I Googled the address and phone number. The phone number is no longer and the address shows up on the map, but there’s no business name. It’s near the L.A. Mart. A lot can happen in 40 years.
