This is a classic lucite-handled handbag made funky by the addition of a course of extra-long fringe--with little silver beads knotted at intervals-- applied over the crocheted ribbed pattern in black with silver stipes. The lining is silver jersey, the handle fittings are old-silver metal, and the sterling-silver button around which a cord loops keeps the bag closed. This button, embossed with a man-in-the moon motif, was discovered in a button stall at Covent Garden, England. (GOLD HULA is still available.)

Size: Six inches high by seven inches wide by one inch deep, exclusive of handle or fringe.

Price: $250/SOLD (GOLD HULA also SOLD.)
