Vintage 1930s Tooled Leather Clutch Purse - Poppy Flowers - Name Anna inside
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage hand tooled deep brown leather clutch purse featuring an attractive floral design, I believe poppies, on both the front flap of the purse. The name “Anna” is tooled on the interior front, when you lift the flap. The back of the purse has a short leather grip. It has a brass snap closure. The interior is lined in latte coffee colored leather. There is a pocket built onto either interior side. The exterior and interior layers are held together by lacing along the edge. The purse measures 6” by 9 1/4” with a depth of about 2” at the bottom. It does have a few condition problems - there is a leather scuff at the bottom left back edge (see last close-up photo), and there is one lace broken at the top of the back grip, although it still functions. There are a couple of spots on the interior, visible in the photos, and there are some light scuffs on the exterior, overall - I’m sure that these could be buffed out by a leather specialist.
This is a wonderful 30s era clutch - nice example of tooled leather work and great if your name is Anna!
