SPECIAL POST: Madame Souris, Laguna, Calif. Mice Playing Cards Wicker Handbag




This type of bag was on The Vintage Purse Gallery's TOP FIVE MOST WANTED list. We believe it was made in the 1960s by Keith and Helen Parker of Laguna, California's House of Mouse, a "mousoum" that specialized in dioramas of anthropomorphic mice. The couple and their work were featured in the September 2, 1962 article by the Independent Press-Telegram of Long Beach, CA. You can see a preview here: https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/20990907/ If you have any information about the Parkers or the mousoum, please email info@vintagepursegallery.com.
