SORRY, I JUST ARRIVED AND I'M ALREADY SOLD.
What's more fun than sparkling confetti? At first glance we thought this was a Patricia of Miami handbag, but it is actually by Nelson. Interestingly enough, there is a palm tree on the label just like the one seen on Patricia bags. This certainly suggests a relationship, but if so, that would be news to us. (We know that Patricia made the Florida Handbags.) Do you have any insight into this? If so, please let us know.
In any event, this is certainly one of the most beautiful Nelson bags we've ever seen. It is a hard color to describe, with the base sort of a silvery tan. The confetti is predominantly pink with blues and silver, depending on the lighting. (See photos below.)
It measures 8-1/2" wide x 3-3/4" tall (without the handle) x 3-1/2" deep and has protective feet.
Near Mint Condition. We do see some very light spots on the hinge as viewed through the closed lid. These did not even shown in the photos we took. There are absolutely no cracks, chips, crazing, warping, clouding, discoloration, or odors. The clasp turn perfectly.
Wouldn't you have loved to have seen exactly how they made these amazing confetti Lucite bags!
Color is captured best here.
Small amount of spotting on hinge not showing up in photo.
