Miniature leather doll purse, vintage 1900s. A perfect accessory for your French or German Fashion Dolls, this little leather pocketbook is beautifully made and fully functional, just like a real purse. Made of soft leather with a metal frame, the purse front features a colorful design depicting two dancing dolls in Dutch costumes. The interior is fully lined in light-colored leather and the little handles are made of rolled and stitched leather. Purse body measures 2-1/4" from base to top of clasp and 2-1/4" wide. The handles have a 2" drop.
In excellent condition, clean and bright. Clasp opens easily and closes tightly, hinges are strong and work smoothly. Very clean both inside and out. Very minor wear around edges, can only be seen when examined closely. There is one tiny chip in the leather on the bag back and a bit of wear at the base of the right end of the back handle, both visible in the photos.
Unmarked. Circa late 19th to early 20th century.
Beautiful dolls, vintage evening bags and sewing patterns.
Spring is in the air. Time to update to your collection, or to start a new one. Enjoy playing with your dolls.
