Floral Basket Purse. 1950s-60s. Maker: Midas of Miami. Wicker picnic basket-style bag with ecru velvet on the top and front, featuring three-dimensional appliqu├ęd embroidered flowers, bows, embroidered and velvet leaves, gold glitter glue and gold swirl trim. Has the gold-braided handles that are typical Midas. I’m sure I’ve said it before, but I love, love, love this designer. It’s quite possible that I need some professional help.

What a lovely and feminine purse. I love the little pansy in the corner.

Hi Rochelle! Isn't it sweet? I love feminine bags. They provide such an interesting contrast to my big, heavy Doc Martens!
