Mixed Media Strawberries Handbag. 1960s. Maker: Unknown. Mustard-yellow textured fabric bag with velveteen leaves, floral needlepoint patches and three-dimensional velveteen strawberries with leaves. Some of the faux pearl “seeds” are missing. Two interior pockets; one with zipper. Snaps shut. Matching cloth handle.

I’m kind of surprised this one doesn’t have a maker tag as it’s reminiscent of so many famous manufacturers of the era. Could be that an industrious lady added the fancy bits to a plain yellow bag.
