Artsy Cage Purse with Hand-Holding-Flowers Motif. 1960s. Maker: Jolles. Black cage-like metal purse—reminds me of storefront security gates—with a hot pink felt interior lining. There are pink and blue felt dots stuck to the outside, some of which have pharoah-head faux (fauxroahs, heh) coins stuck to them, as well as a bouquet of flowers clutched by a black ceramic hand. Usually, you see the hand motif in Victorian jewelry, but this—well, this is an outstanding use of it and the other hodge-podge décor. It’s also really, really weird, which makes it one of my favorites.
