1940s Hand Tooled Leather Mexican Box Purse with Interior Mirror


Shipping to United States: $16.00

Elevate your favorite Southwestern looks with this true vintage box purse!

This hand-tooled purse was made in Mexico during the 1940s by “Artmex”. It is constructed from genuine leather with gorgeous hand-tooled desert rose designs. This item looks to only have been used once or twice and still has the label sticker inside!

The body of the purse measures 8 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall, and 3.5 inches deep. The top handle-style straps hang approximately 7 inches long.

The front closure consists of a flap that slips through a loop. The lid of the box opens to reveal a nice clean interior with side pockets, lipstick holster, and a mirror. It’s large enough to hold a smartphone, keys, cash…and all of the other daily essentials.
The bottom of the purse has a pretty textured pattern and brass feet.

Please note that there is a small area in the corner of the mirror that shows some age, but overall, this well made box purse is in excellent vintage condition. The leather is in fantastic shape and the purse was stored in a smoke-free environment.
