I found this in a bag that was put away in 1978. I can't seem to find any info on 'Lupe' or the time period when they were made with the hasp-like clasp. My mom say's she remembers that she put it away because she really liked it, but not where she got it. My Grandma was actually a flapper lol, so I thought it might have been hers, but the online auction seems top be generating no response....Does anyone know where/when this came from? ThankYou!!

    Hi, its a pretty piece and seems to have a "tap flap" mechanism. If it is from the Art Deco period as you suggest there was a popular comedienne actress with a colourful life called Lupe Velez (playing Pepper in the film Hot Pepper) - it may have been something that was named/marketed after her?. I think its gorgeous!
