Child Size Blue Felt Poodle Purse. 1960s. Maker: Novelena. Sweet, very small bucket bag covered in turquoise blue felt. On the front is a black felt poodle with glued-on white seed beads, rhinestones, plaid trim and a faux pearl nose (which I need to re-glue). On each side are two tiny plaid bows with rhinestones in the center.
How cute is this? I’ve seen a few Novelena bags, mostly for children, but not exclusively. For size comparison, I’ve placed the Novelena purse in front of a full-size poodle tote by Garay.
