I was given this handbag as a gift, but cannot find anything about the maker and wonder if it is a 50s bag or an imitation? The interior looks just as I'd expect a vintage bag to look, with brass fittings gripping the lining fabric, and there is a label on the pocket which says 'Specially Hand Made and Fashioned by Carol J. Miller. I find a Carol S. Miller online who makes modern handbags, but no J Miller.
Can anyone shed some light on this? It looks in vgc, no stains or tears, a little bit of fading to the braided trim at one side and the back, and only the tiniest bit of wear to the clasp.
Many thanks for any information!
