Miss Adventure

This was my first produciton handbag. I had 6 made for me in New Jersey. The leather is a shrunken Italian lambskin, the hardware is hand forged stainless steel with a date plate on the back that says "Made in North Webster, IN" and the date. The back also has my own handwriting embroidered so that it says the serial number "One of Six" and so forth.
It was inspried by a trip I took to Argentina and I got lost because I left the guide book in the hostel. So this bag I made with a secret pocket in the flap so that you can always take your guide book when you are on an adventure. It is just as fashionable in far flung countries as it is the center of business in a metropolitan city.
I only have one left, it comes with the display stand because it is a work of art and when it is not being used it can be displayed and resume it's roll of art in the home.

Dimensions: 10" wide by 9" tall by 4" thick.
