Outstanding hand painted mixed media box purse.
Signed by the artist Genevieve Harris.
Sea scape with wildlife, primarily birds.
There are seagulls and pelicans.
The birds are raised from the background.
Seashells on lid are real shells.
There is so much detail, even a light house.
Handle is twisted marbled white Lucite.
Inside is covered with light blue velvet.
In very good condition with minor loss on upper left of front above the seagull.
Clasp needs polishing, minor staining to the inside fabric mostly due to age.
Mirror is in good condition but the little ends of the finish are coming loose.
Overall measurements are approximately 8 3/16″ wide by 4 7/8″ tall not including the handle.
Depth is 4 1/8″.
Handle clearance from center of arch to purse lid is 4 3/4″.
This purse is a hand bag, will not go over the shoulder.
Great to have on your dresser. You can use it for you make up or perfume bottles.
Estimated to date from the 1960’s.
