This is one of the most amazing examples of early tooled leather purses we've ever had. Brown cowhide leather with a an Arts and Crafts embossed floral and striped design on one side. Hammered, brass-toned metal frame. The handle has floral tool work It closes with a turn-key lock with a green plastic pull (celluloid or another type of older plastic; it doesn't not test positive for bakelite). The interior is unusually clean and still has the original coin purse. Laced seams. Truly stunning!
