Vintage Caro-Nan Box Purse — Painted with Playing Cards

I love these 1960s-1970s box purses, many of which were painted by Caro-Nan. I don’t know anything about Caro-Nan and there is very little online about this company.

My green painted basket purse has a bridge motif. It is nicely painted front and back with playing cards. The sides of the purse are painted with the reverse side of a playing card. Inside the purse, it’s like in a gingham fabric. This purse is part of my personal collection and not for sale. I’m always looking for box purses to add to my collection. If you have one, let me know!
