Faux Gem Encrusted Box Bag. 1950s. Midas of Miami. Gorgeous box purse covered in the tiniest of silver seed beads, pastel colored faux gems, shells, and faux pearls. Silver rope trim. Milky white Lucite top and clear Lucite handle and clasp. Four clear round feet. Lined in white fabric.
This one is an oldie! The tag is different from most Midas bags in that in addition to it saying “An Original Midas of Miami,” it also says “Handicrafts Inc. – Miami 47, Florida.” Also, Midas is mostly known for its wicker purses with signature woven golden rope handles.
While I love them all, this one is definitely a standout!
