Vintage hand tooled handbag in tan with stitched edging. Leaping deer motif on back of purse with initials "M A H" stamped at front. These tooled bags were very popular from the 1940's to the 1970's. The appearance and length of strap on this bag suggest it was made in the 40's or 50's.

Envelope style handbag features a shorter strap with snaps at sides. Stitched edges with silver toned hardware at front closure. Bag has a very nice patina, with the front flap appearing somewhat darker than the rest of the bag, the leather is supple and in excellent condition. Decorative dome tops of three of four rivets on straps are missing, snaps are fully functional. Some very slight surface cracking and some pen marks are present on the interior side of the top flap. Two inner compartments. Bag is in very good vintage condition.

This bag could be given a cleaning with saddle soap if desired, which would probably affect the patina but will remove the pen marks (which are inside only) and condition away the minor cracks and likely make the overall tone more uniform.
