Can anyone tell me who made this beautiful vintage bag? The leather is buttery soft and thin like eel skin. The color is ox blood. The closure has an oval stamped or tooled medallion sewn onto the flap that says TROPHY with a gazelle head profile inside a laurel wreath. There are no other labels or tags anywhere in/on the purse. It has two short knotted handles with a detachable leather shoulder strap. The interior is lined with a tan sueded fabric with a zippered side pocket. Very well made. Wonderful genuine leather smell. I have searched the web to no avail. When I enter the word TROPHY I get everything but the kitchen sink. Was it made in Africa?

    Try "Trophy Handbag"

    Thank you for your comment and suggestion, but I tried "Trophy Handbag" before I posed my question on this forum. What I got was page after page of Trophy Queen handbags and other very high-end "trophy" purses and handbags.
