A sweet little vintage crochet tan purse that is ideal for use as a belt bag for carrying your essentials when you want your hands free. In VGC Vintage Crochet Purse

I just added this purse to my esty store front, Edwardian vintage purse with snake heads for clasps with blue stone for eyes

I guess you all are just as baffled with the mark on the bag below.  Any idea of the age?

 I love the unusually large kiss clasp.  There are 4 brass feet, the purse measures 8 1/2 inches long by 4 1/2 and stands 6 inches tall without handle 11 1/2 including the handle.  Each of the tear shaped kiss balls is about an inch long.  Thanks!

Hi all,

I'm trying to put a name and age to this cute purse.  The last picture includes the mark and part of the zipper for clues.  Mark is somewhat worn.

Thanks for any help.  :-)
