This is a lovely and very detailed hand-tooled envelope bag. Since I listed it I found a tagged lucite dangle in an Etsy shop making me think that it's probably older than I thought: 1940s early 1950s is a good guess. The beautiful flower pattern is just everywhere, even on the sides.

There's no makers' mark; something tells me that it may have been the work of an artisan in Canada. I have never seen a bag with this little hole and a lucite diamond-shaped dangle attached to it. The dangle is tagged Pfeifer Brothers Department Store, which was located in downtown Little Rock, Arkansa, and you can see it here:

Inside, the bag is in very good condition with this amazing marbled leather. (Not stains...) There are lots of slip pockets and a zippered compartment.

The bag is a delight in Art Nouveau inspired curvaceous decor when you lift the flap, with the initials GM and a charming rose on another slip pocket flanked by two budding roses.

Mark: none (initials GM would be owner's).

Condition: very good all over. I can't close the zipper inside, and don't want to try pulling hard not to ruin it... The metal snap has lost some dark color. There are no tears; this bag was obviously used but has no major flaw.

Size:
Width: 11 3/4 inch
Height: 7 inch

PLEASE NOTE: Item can be sent to Canada and the U.S.A. only. Should sending cost less than paid, difference will be reimbursed to buyer through PayPal.
