Betsy B Wooden Box Bag with Floral Velvet Appliqués. Early 1960s. Maker: Betsy B of Florida. Crème-colored painted wooden box purse in a unique octagonal shape with lovely velvet appliquéd flowers and leaves, and velvet ribbon trim on the handle. The coolest part is that I have TWO. I’ve had the blue one for many years—can’t remember exactly how long—but the pink one recently showed up on my doorstep, for a very reasonable price. I love these bags—and not just because they’re fraternal twins. I love that there are subtle differences in the way the artist (or artists) positioned the flowers. Both purses are lined and both have inside mirrors, one round and one square. And both purses make me happy.
