This is the smallest vintage purse I own. Looks anachronistic next to my Honda key, but a good representation of exactly how I feel when I wear Doc Martens with a vintage skirt!

Handbag with Needlepoint German Shepherd. 1960s. Maker: Jolles Original. Beige mesh fabric—almost like needlepoint matting—purse with needlepoint German shepherd dog and hundreds of tiny, glued-on seed beads in white, dark brown, umber and red. The detail, shading and color on the dog is fabulous and he has a glittery rhinestone eye. Goldtone hardware, chain handle and feet. Black satin lining and interior pocket.
Jolles purses are among my favorites, because their designs are so striking. This is the first German shepherd I’ve seen, and the price was excellent, so I had to have it. When you scroll down, you’ll see that Jaeger the Border Collie mix is fond of it as well!
