Caron of Houston Needlepoint Box Bag

Needlepoint and Beaded Box Purse. 1960s. Maker: Caron of Houston, Texas. Small hard-sided briefcase-style bag covered in woven fabric. Decorated on the front side with a needlepoint floral scene, large colorful faux gems, tiny white seed beads and gold trim. Goldtone hardware and faux leather handle.

Caron is known for this type of decoration, but this is a rare bag because of its box style. I just love how classic it is, but with that added sparkle and color.
