Before the designer era of the 1980s took hold, the lack of clear direction in the fashion of the 1970s had produced a variety of playful styles. This red vinyl purse ca 1980 is a wonderful example of that! Not only does it look like a telephone, with its receiver handle & rotary dial design on the front, it's a fully operational phone! The receiver is a real one, the keypad on the front really works and inside is a telephone wire ready to be plugged in to an outlet.
