Antique Arts & Crafts Leather Handbag Amity c early 1900s - 1930s

Arts & Crafts style embossed leather clutch handbag with
unusual Lucite or Bakelite framing. Floral and geometric
design at the front with a leather wrist strap for carrying at
the back. Unusual top clasp closure. Beautiful green suede
interior with two slip pockets one of them holding a mirror. Mirror is
beveled glass.

Here is some great info about these handbags and a link
for more info;

The Arts & Crafts purses were probably inspired by William Morris' designs and Elbert Hubbard's Roycrofter molded leather book bindings and purses, there were many makers
of these Arts & Crafts purses, as well as the fittings and the frames. Meeker (Joplin, MO), Enger Kress, Amity, Justin,
Bosca (Springfield, Ohio) and Kranz of Cordova Shops
(Buffalo, NY) are some favorite makers. Jemco and Turnloc made many of the metal fittings for purses. They were most popular from the turn of the century to the 1930s and are
made of genuine leather.

Measures; 7.25" length, 5.5" height, approx. 1.25" depth.

This bag is in pretty amazing condition. The Lucite/Bakelite
frame is showing some surface wear and marks especially
where it opens and closes from rubbing. There are some minor scuffs on the leather. The lacing
is good and strong showing no wear as they sometimes do.
The mirror is pitted/etched from age which is common for old beveled glass.

Thanks for viewing.
