I got to the thrift store today and this had just come in. I love it so much but know I would never use it. I think the strap and top are plastic not Bakelite but it is old.
I love the how it latches. Bad picture but this piece just lifts up and the purse opens. it even has little feet on the bottom so not to rub the needlepoint. I think it's headed for my booth.
I am working on such a cool project for my daughter's birthday. She gets it on Sunday so I will post the pictures then. It's pretty cool don't miss it.
Have a great week!
