CELLULOID BAG TOP/FRAME - ART DECO - ORIENTAL FISHES DESIGN

This is a celluloid bag top/frame.  It would have had a material bottom.  There are holes for sewing.  It has two Oriental fishes and a face inside a flower.  It would have been from the Art Deco period.  Ladies would purchase the frame and make a bag to match their outfit!  It would most likely have been made in Japan.  These frames are now very collectible - especially when the frame hinges and catch work, as this one does!  www.gillianhorsup.com - reference 2681 B81/12 price £140.  #CelluloidBagFrameArtDeco #CelluloidBagFrameOrientalFishDesign #CelluloidBagFrameFishes
