Asian/Oriental/Japanese Motif Purse by Neptune Handbags
Asian/Oriental/Japanese Motif Purse. 1960s. Maker: Neptune Handbags. Gorgeous, larger sized, unusually shaped purse made of faux black leather with a blanket-soft fabric on the front. The front has been embellished with fabric, trim, gold glitter paint, rhinestones, faux gold leaves and roses that create an Asian scene of a pagoda, tree and walkway. Twist lock. Four gold feet. Interior zip pocket.
I have quite a few purses that are embellished in a similar fashion, but none with a scene like this. I was so excited to acquire it, particularly since it’s made by a manufacturer I’ve never heard of. If you, too, have a purse by Neptune Handbags (this one has the name stamped in gold inside), please email a photo.
