Tooled Leather Clutch. 1950s. Maker: Unknown. Lovely Mexican leather large clutch purse with a tooled floral design. What makes this unique is the name “Agnes,” which is etched onto the front of the purse in a beautiful cursive, with leafy accents. Most of my tooled bags are from the ’60s or ‘70s, but I believe this one is older because of the name. I love the name “Agnes.” I have a coffee mug with the name “Agnes” on it. My next pet will be named “Agnes.” I even like writing “Agnes.” OK, I’ll stop now.

Laveda! Wow, I bet there aren't too many of those around. As for the suit, I'd love to have a Lilli Ann! I had a Lilli Ann peplum jacket, but I sold it a few years ago. It was tiny--would fit you! Got a boxy '60s one now, but nothing beats '40s chic!
