Wicker Purse with Poodle Motif. 1960s. Maker: Princess Charming by Atlas. Gorgeous natural wicker handbag with marbleized brown plastic and silvertone hardware. Front features a plastic-covered scene of two playful poodles, one on a leash and one chasing a yellow butterfly. Poodles are adorned with black shells, a common design element among the Atlas purses, because many of them feature a sea-life motif. Some of the shells have fallen to the bottom of the plastic, but it doesn’t detract from the other details, like the sparkly mesh background, rhinestones, flower beads and gold rickrack. Let’s face it—this is just the cutest purse ever. Or, at least, in the Top Ten.

I was at a show yesterday and saw the same bag, only BIGGER. It was fun to see the mutant version.
