This woven natural straw, late 1940s or early 1950s handbag was made in Italy. It combines the natural-colored straw with trim where the crisscross weave designs meet, in red, blue and green. The wide, short strap and the flat oval base are made of plain, braided straw. The rounded lid of the handbag has a button and loop closure. The bag is lined with ivory taffeta fabric, with one slip pocket inside. It is in very good condition, with a few stray wisps of straw coming loose from the weave, and some creasing to the flat base from its long storage (see photos). Although the design and construction are a bit primitive, this authentic vintage straw handbag is very cute--and large enough to be practical!
