This charming vintage hand bag is a pearlized bakelite type material resembling capiz shell and opens to reveal a working music box that plays an unknown song. This is a perfect gift or decorative accent for the vintage purse collector for vanity or dresser display. This unusual bag measures 5"W x 4" Deep x 6.25"H plus handle which stands about 4.25" higher than the top of the bag. It is in good vintage condition showing patina on the brass closure, hinges, feet and fittings. The Bakelite exterior has a creamy yellow patina that may be able to be cleaned with mineral spirits to return it completely to the original color but it is charming as is. The flowers inside the shadowbox are all intact. There are a couple spots on the back that do not show age and the original pearlized color shows. The bag has no makers mark. less
