If you missed it last time, here's another 70's telephone purse -- in which the phone actually works. (In case you don't know Jack, or don't remember when phones were plugged in things, you'll need access to a phone jack to make this old bag phone work.)
This powder-blue push-button telephone caught my eye, but the cord, as usual, was discolored. I wasn't sure if it was faded or dirty -- and I wasn't going to use my finger nail to lightly scratch the cord to see which either.
Those enough old enough to remember using phones with coiled cords remember all-too-well how difficult they are to clean -- and that knowledge, my friends, was what removed the idea of purchasing from my mind.
Shiny black vinyl embossed to replicate alligator, the handle of the purse is the phone handset.
A large and roomy size, it measures 14 2/3" long and 12" high, not including the handle. The bag has a long shoulder strap.
Never used, the hang tag instructions are still attached, the original paper stuffing is still in the bag and the cellophane wrapper is still on the handset (removed for the pictures). The bag is in mint condition and has the telephone cord included. And, yes it does work, tested it.
