Jemco Exquisite hand tooled leather bag 23) Inventory # B00146: Jemco Exquisite hand tooled leather bag
This is an Exquisite example of the hand tooled leather bags so fashionable with style conscious ladies between 1900 and 1930.

Fulco manufactured jewelry and bag hardware for the Newport trade in the early 20th century. The bag carries the Jemco diamond mark on the frame in numerous places. The interior is a complex construction, beginning with the large snap pocket on the outside of the envelope flap that includes inside a Loew's Theater ticket stub, priced at 35 cents! The body of the bag is comprised of 3 section, two gold moiré' lined open pockets flanking a large latching section. The latching pocket is supported by Jemco's proprietary frame with hinged coin purse suspended in the middle. The latching section is lined in tan leather, matching the outside of the coin purse. The velvet coin purse lining is heavily soiled, but otherwise sound. Gold lettering identifies the original owner as "Mrs. R.W. Seanor." The backside of the bag forms one large open pocket. The appearance is stunning, but there are some wear and condition problems i.e. Cracking at the flexure points of the envelope flap, lining discoloration and soiling from decades of contact with the metal snaps and fittings and slight surface abrasion on the back of the bag. Overall this is nothing less than a treasure! Measures 10 x 1 1/2 x 5 3/4".
