Wicker Purse with 3-Dimensional Vegetables. 1950s. Maker: Midas of Miami. White-painted wicker purse with gold and white braided handles that are typical Midas, my favorite purse manufacturer. The purse is decorated with velveteen leaves and satin fruits and vegetables including a strawberry, corn, carrot and pastel pea pods with faux pearl peas. It’s faded from exposure to sunlight, but, really, at this age, who isn't?

Hi Jen! Isn't it fun to carry a vintage purse? They're such great conversation pieces. I especially love when older ladies stop me to tell me they once had "one of those!"
