Exquisite handmade leather handbag with braided single strap, thick sturdy leather with gorgeous hand tooled scalloped border design and circular floral bouquet patterned detail, beautiful painted blue exterior, strong and meticulous leather stitching, and a clean fully disclosed single pocket interior.

My Aunt found this extraordinary purse in the mid 70's at a small shop run by a skilled artisan in Baltimore, Maryland. She bought it from him and kept it safe in storage for all these years.

A gorgeous one-of-a-kind accessory, this handbag has never been worn and has retained all of its original beauty!

Excellent vintage condition. Leather is naturally thick and firm, not bendable. Very minimal amounts of creasing from age.

Purse measures approximately 10” (25.4 cm) tall x 10” (25.4 cm) across x 4” (10.16 cm) wide

Hanging length: 24” (61 cm)

No maker’s mark or signature found. I wish I knew more about the craftsman of this purse! The detailing, design, and quality make this accessory a true work of art.
