Tooled Leather Purse with Celluloid Frame

This small ladies' leather handbag has been dyed an attractive two-tone brown and the leather has a stippled texture. There is a decorative flap with a tooled Art Deco design. The purse has a yellow and brown celluloid frame with a hinged clasp. The purse measures 8" X 6" X 2" thick; the 14" long leather strap is held to the frame by two yellow celluloid rings. The inside of the purse is dark green suede. The purse dates from the 1920's. It is in excellent original condition.
