Another Fish Story

Ruby Dobuler, the handbag industry's famous fisherman, got his name in print again. Give him a chance and he'll tell you about the tripv from Mattituck, L. I., when he won the pool with a five-pound, seven-ounce bass and was high hook as well.
Seems that everyone in the party was amazed by the disappearance of lines and rigging while pulling up a hooked fish. Turned out to be huge buff-colored shark that had been stealing the fish. By the time the skipper had rigged up a shark outfit the big fellow got away.

The 1950s

Spring 1955 Dobuler Handbag Co. line is detailed on page 30 of the January issue of the January issue of Handbags & Accessories.

Dobuler goes very smart for spring

A large, inspired collection of spring bags is currently on view at Dobuler Handbag Co. Though several styles are faithful to the larger, staple type which this firm does so well, many mare have real fashion appeal with emphasis on elegant, lady-like styling. In all, construction and detailing are excellent at the price. These are tagged to retail from $10.95 to $18.50.

Scissor frames are used extensively and some imported frames show up on better numbers. Special attention is given to handles in this collection. A satchel takes a golden snake swivel handle, pouches are finished with rigid filigree arc or solid metal handles. Of special interest is the tubular leather handle, tipped with gold metal balls, which flattens under loops to convert an overarm pouch into a clutch effect. Another highlight is a soft pouch with broad center loop handle and gold ring closing. This also has a padded double row pattern down middle, adding to the pannier effect.

For Valentines, there's the "Sweetheart," a framed heart-shaped pouch with wide, deep gusset, double spaghetti handles and a center dip clasp, seen in a lovely shade called "flame red." Other important colors in the lineup are benedictine, coffee frost, boxer tan, beech, avocado, cameo, and darks."
