Vintage Painted Wooden Purse, St. Simons Island
Buy this adorable vintage painted wooden purse, circa 1960's, that has a lucite handle. This cute purse measures 10" long, 5" wide, and 6" tall. The painted scene on the front is on the coast with a U. S. Coast Guard building and a lighthouse. It mentions a Sea Palms resort, so this may have been a souvenir purse sold in the area of St. Simons Island, GA. The saying, "Home is Where the Heart Is... St. Simons Island" is painted on the top lid. It has a brass clasp and brass hinges. There is a signature of E. G. S. next to a bird with expanded wings. The inside of the purse is lined with red felt and green rick rack trim. The back of the purse continues with the coastal scene that includes Christ Church, Fort Frederica, Epworth by the Sea, and Lovely Lane Chapel. The scene also wraps all around the purse, so the sides include Tall Pine, Bloody Marsh, and Yacht Club. This vintage purse is in excellent condition and would be a great gift.
