Beautiful old brown leather handbag 7"x6" w/nice silver snap frame. Tooled Lily of the Valley motif on front in the Arts & Crafts style. Patent inside states 1-26-21

I also include a page from "Everyday Fashions of the Twenties" edited by Stella Blum which shows similar examples.

So pretty and well made! I love it and hope you enjoy too.

    Thank you Virginia! I love these old leather handbags. I believe the ad says they sold for under $2.00.

    Thanks Nadia - yes it looks more like yours :)

    Thanks Racer for the nice comment. I love my research books!

    Thanks Kyra - yes the research is part of the fun of collecting.

    Thanks Elisabeth! I love this. I found it on a trip back home visiting my parents - little town in Iowa with a very cool junkstore.

    Thanks Trey for the love.
