This natural-colored wicker box purse or handbag from the 1960s has dark chocolate brown leather trim, including the top handle. Each strand of woven wicker is individually encased in clear vinyl, to protect it from wear and tear—which is probably why the bag is in such great condition, to this day! The 4 metal feet on the base, and the hinged clasp are both made of gold-toned metal. The handbag is lined with dark brown vinyl, “studded” with gold metal around the edges, with one zipper and one slip pocket. In very good condition, this perfectly preppy 1960s bag has a crack in one of the wicker strands on the top of the lid (see photo). Because it is totally encased in vinyl, this does not affect the structural stability of the lid surface; it just appears like a small dark mark.
