VINTAGE PINE NEEDLE HANDLED COVERED BASKET POCKETBOOK $41U.S.
We're offering for sale this Vintage Pine Needle Handled Covered Basket Pocketbook. An appraiser recently identified the basket as a Florida Indian made piece, probably Seminole, made in the 1940's or early 1950's. From top handle to bottom the basket/pocketbook measures 12 1/2" height x about 8 1/2" long x almost 7" wide. The basket cover could use a good cleaning but, I will let that chore be up to the new owner. Condition is good but, there are a few areas that are missing the decorative top stitching. Originally, I was told, there was a button and hoop design clasp but, that is missing. The hinged top works fine and the inside is clean.
