Might it be as late as the 1950's? In a lucite to replicate a rage of tortoise pattern. It is not marked to my knowledge. A wonderful antique that's been in my possession since I was about 17 yrs old.

Parents came home from a Mississippi Antiques show & gifted me! Made From what I know, but my research needs to be better. It was AN EXCELLENT holder of my glass animal collection! (for 45 yrs) This will be a collector piece and I suspect I will want to send more photos and give as much information as possible.

It's quite a gem. Dimensions are 8.5 wide. It's handle reaches up high & is still affixed very strongly. I'm tickled to offer a few of mine & my mom's purses. As well as vintage shoes, Andrew Geller, Garolini and the like. I'll be putting old hats on as well...

Won't be as early as this purse but maybe someone can help me with more information on this purse! - pls let me know. I usually go recycled for wrapping, or packaging materials I use recycled when possible.
