xxM344M Antique Jemco Tooled Leather Purse Turnloc Patent 1915.
Antique Leather Handbag Purse.  Lovely hand-tooled floral designs on front and back. Marked Jemco on metal frame (was informed this is a Jemco Betley handbag, made in Texas). Has Patent dates on metal frame - Oct. 5, 1915 (also found another patent date on it of 1918). Has 2 inside pockets (one pocket has lettering imprinted on it, but it's too faint to read). One really unique feature of this purse is the small loop that hangs down is marked "Turnloc". When you turn it, the purse is locked and can't be opened until it's turned again. Clasp also works good. Measures aprx. 6" x 7 1/2". Vintage wear consistent with age. Considering it's almost 100 years old, still in remarkably good shape. Wonderful early handbag. L
