Table of Contents

This book will identify, by chapter, purse styles over a 100-year span, from 1880 to 1980. Any female who loves or is fascinated with handbags must own this book. More than 320 photos showcase creative, stylish, flamboyant, prestigious, and conventional purses. You will learn that the handbag creates a mystery about the owner. Discussed are purses of all types: beaded, evening, Lucite, pearl, straw, reptile, tapestry, and bags from the 1940s to the 1960s. There is also a chapter on German silver, compacts, and accessories. This book is truly a delight for purse lovers of all ages.

A century of purses is condensed into 143 pages illustrating the changes in these items over the years. This picture price guide groups the purses by types, such as beaded purses and tapestry examples, rather than chronologically.
