Mid to Late 30s Crown Lewis Suede Handbag With Original Matching Gloves

Year: Mid to Late 1930s. From research, we believe this bag to be from 1936 when the Lewis Purse Inc. and the Norman Blum Glove Co. produced together matching handbags and gloves.

The interior of the bag is fully lined in satin and has 2 interior wall pockets that contain the original pocket mirror and crown logo comb.
This bag came with matching brown gloves. The tag inside the gloves says, ‘Made of Rayon’ 6 1/2. There is more information on the label of the gloves but it is unreadable.
