Gold Lame Three-Dimensional Poodle Purse

Gold Lamè Three-Dimensional Poodle Purse. 1960s. Maker: Custom Original Pert Bag California. Fabulous gold lamè large-size purse with a peek-a-boo plastic window. Behind the window is an incredible three-dimensional fluffy poodle. It looks like it used to be white, but has discolored with age. The poodle has a gold collar and there are gold balloons behind it with handwritten locations: Hawaii, New York, Las Vegas, Palm Springs and Miami.

I love poodle purses! This was a fabulous find, and is the second Pert Bag in my collection. The first one can be seen here.

Both are going to require some reinforcement on their straps, but the wonderful, creative design is worth a little extra expense.
