Von Altman Specializing in Items

"Von Altman Purses is inaugurating a new policy for the spring season and will offer a short line consisting of about six high style item novelties.

As in the past these will be available in all wanted colors and materials and may be secured on special order with gloves to match.

Mrs. Von Altman will also make bags from special material submitted by the stores on custom orders.

Harry and Burt Mirkin are now in charge of the Fifth Avenue, New York showroom.
