Haertig, Evelyn.
Antique Combs & Purses.

A beautifully illustrated, information-packed study of antique from ancient times to the 20th century, but with a vast majority of the focus on Victorian, Art Nouveau, and 20th century specimens. The first book on the subject, it was the result of seven years research, and provides the dealer, collector, and designer with complete information on the history, styles, repair, and display of antique combs and purses, as well as covering rarities, materials and artisans. The author was a veteran collector of vintage beaded purses and wrote several books on the subject.

Hardcover. 8.5"x11", 304 pages, filled with color and black & white illustrations, dust jacket. Light wear.
