Out of the bag
"CONGRATULATIONS on his Bar Mitzvah go to Allan Mazer son of Briteniode's Sylvia. Brightman Mazer. Services on this happy occasion were held Sept. 10th at the Bellerose Jewish Center, Bellerose, L. I. and open house for family and friends followed at the Mazur home in Bellerose." "Handbags & Accessories" October 1955, page 43
This half page ad in the February 1961 Handbags & Accessories surprised me! I had always believed this long, lean shape was a mid-50's Art Modern style. The term "Underarm" is also an unexpected flash from the past, as this was the term used for clutch bags in the 30s and 40s!
