Plastic Covered Handbag with Boy and Girl Tapestry. 1960s. Maker: Unknown. Tan fabric purse with green, white and pink tapestry square in the center, accented by a gold and white trim border. The tapestry is a 16th-century boy and girl a-courting. The boy stands behind a pedestal fence and the girl is coyly waving a fan. Acrylic handle and gold-tone hardware.
It was a little difficult to photograph because it’s slightly crunched up due to its age, so the plastic reflects the light in odd ways. Still very sweet. Also, a note about the tapestry: the Elizabethan-era boy/girl courting theme seems to be a trend for purses made during the 1960s. I have no idea why. Perhaps it's because the Zeffirelli film "Romeo and Juliet" came out in 1968.
