Another Vintage Lucite Purse

Well, there's been an addition to the shelf.  I was at an antique place in Monterey today and spotted this lovely clear purse with a carved lid.  I just had to have it of course and it was a reasonable price too.  Meant to be right?  So, after I checked it for cracks and chips, I took it to the front to buy.  It is not labeled but is very similar to several well known companies.  There is also a rectangular bit of glue (from a label) at the back inside of the purse, under the lid hinge.  It looks a lot like it could have been a Patricia of Miami tag...maybe Charles S. Kahn.  Wherever it came from, I love it!

I especially love clear lucite purses...
they will go with any outfit.
Coupled with a Liberty of London scarf, a clear
plastic purse will pop...
