Just two little kitschy French poodles fashionably decked out in rhinestones, sharing a bottle of the bubbly…
The little wicker bag has been topped off with two chenille poodles, two champagne glasses, and a bottle of champagne chilling in a ice bucket. I love this little bag….Cheers..
I think the bag is from the 1960’s.. The label reads…Created by Jerry Aor McMilcan or McMillan?? Darien, Conn. If anyone knows anything about the artist/designer, I would love any info?

    I love this purse for so many reasons, not the least of which is the handmade quality of it. I’m guessing that Jerry McKan or Milcan – or whatever the last name is of the person who should have written their signature clearer so people like us could have looked them up for posterity – made this himself or herself. It’s a plain old nothing special basket spraypainted gold with the little line of rhinestones glued not straight at all on the lid. And that gold mesh ribbon thing isn’t pulled especially straight across the body of the purse despite efforts to spruce it up.

    I’m completely wild about the poodles, especially that they’re made out of pipe cleaners and bejeweled themselves. Always a nice touch to have dogs drinking!

    Do you have a collection of purses? LOVE this one.

    Thank you, I have a few bags, but not a collection. Most bags I bought were huge/practical, so I could fill them shopping for Fiesta and Flamingos….smile..
