Get Vendio Gallery - Now FREE! Weaving pine needles was a popular folk art from the late 1800's through the Great Depression, especially in Florida.
The Florida Seminoles wove lots of baskets and other household items from pine needles, and it was taken up as a folk art by ladies in Florida, and ladies everywhere, thanks to crafts sections in the ladies magazines of the time. This purse is a wonderful example, from Florida, from the 1920's!
The pine needles are coil woven. This purse is a nice size, standing 6 1/2" tall, 8 1/2" wide and 5 1/2 deep!The purse has a lovely Art Deco look to the design. It is in remarkable condition, with no breaks or tears. The purse is tight and clean. The only wear that I found was a small bit to the handles where they come out of the purse. The top is an open lattice weave with a lovely Art Deco star. The purse has it's original lining, which is in excellent condition - clean and bright, with no tears. This purse won't disappoint! I have a basket that was made by the same weaver, if you are interested! I try and recycle packaging materials as much as I can.
