Golden Box Bag. 1960s. Maker: Unknown. Gold lamé oblong box-style purse, circa the ‘60s, encrusted in beads, sequins, flowers and leaves. Snap closure. Inside mirror. I have to call it an “unknown” because there’s no manufacturer's tag, but I'm reasonably certain it is a Caron of Houston. Caron is known for its black fabric bags with similar beadwork on the front, but I see these shmancy gold ones listed online every once in a while. It’s sweet, and, unlike envelope-style evening purses, you can easily fit a cell phone and lipstick in it. And, of course, the keys to your Ferrari, dahling.
