Here is a brief history of INGBER Handbags......
Company INGBER & Company was founded in 1903 by the brothers Issaq and David Ingbery in Philadelphia, PA. Realizing the American Dream they created a small family business that had good potential for further development. The brand was a success until 1960...but could not stand foreign competition...so the family business began to decline.
In the mid-1940's the INGBER Bags were mentioned in every column of the fashion news. During the Second World War the company enjoyed great success. This is when this black wool handbag with the Lucite handle and MOP design was made! ENJOY it when it was at its greatest success!
