Vintage Original Slatted Bamboo Birdcage Handbag


1970s Original Slatted Bamboo Birdcage Bag

- We have read of similar bags brought back by servicemen after the Korean War in the 1950s, and in the book "Bags" published by the Pepin Press 2004 they state Italy 1974. Of course it could have been made in Asia and sold in Italy. A friend's sister bought one here in Australia in the 1970s. Copies were being sold in Indonesia as recently as 2019. This one is definitely an older model as it it stamped Made in Taiwan, R.O.C. and looks exactly the same as the one featured in the book Bags mentioned above.

- Made from slats of bamboo and yellow plastic beads woven together with nylon cord in this ingenious design.

- Measures 29cm (11.5") across, 24.5cm (9.5") down and 8cm (3 1/4") deep.

- Great vintage condition, gently used.
