Petite Art Nouveau Purse


My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Europe.
    While there we visited two countries that have renowned collections of Art Nouveau buildings and artifacts...Austria and Belgium.
    Austria's Art Nouveau movement was known as the Vienna Secession and included the art of Gustav Klimt and the architecture of Otto Wagner.
    And the highlight of Belgium Art Nouveau was Victor Horta.
    Today I have found some Art Nouveau accessories to share with you.
    Take for instance the beautifully designed petite purse pictured above.
    The purse measures a mere 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches yet it houses a mirror, a lidded place for makeup and has room for change!
    This beautiful Silver Plate Art Nouveau purse can be found over at Deja-Voodoo for $175- (once at the website scroll two thirds the way down the page to the purse).
