I found this little brown handbag in a goodwill near me -- the blur inside (in the second picture) is a stamp that says something about Canada. The bag is really cute and in great shape but I can't tell if it is leather or not and don't know who the maker is. Does anyone know or can anyone tell. The bag is in great shape but shows a bit of wear around the metal attaching the handle. It is a great size -- just about 8 x 5½ x 4" and the handle is about a 3" drop. The inside, which is almost certainly not leather, is a goldish bronze leather-like material and the flap when you open it is lined with a grosgrain. The three little straps on the front are not attached flat to the bag, rather they are sort of laced in .
I love the shape of the bag and the size -- I feel EXTREMELY ladylike when I carry it.
Any info on the maker and whether it is likely leather or not would be appreciated. I am posting another bag I got at the same time that is also made in Canada and marked Zenith.
