Yes, you're seeing what you think you're seeing: a gigantic straw purse shaped like a guitar, detailed down to the frets and strings. Novelty purses were particularly popular in the 30s and 60s, and I love them for their humor, conversation value and attention to detail. Tag reads, "Lewis Imports Made in Italy." All the best straw bags were made in Italy. Measures 18-1/2" (another 7" for the neck) x 12" x 3". Straw strap measures 36".
