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; 9" length, 7" height, approx. 1.25" depth.
This bag is in good antique condition. The metal components are oxidated, there are minor scuffs on the leather and there is one broken thread.. otherwise the lacing is good and strong showing minimal wear as they sometimes do. The mirror is cloudy from age which is common for old beveled glass.
Thanks for viewing.
