The Emporium Ltd.
A rare and wonderful purse from the early days of Joan and David. Made in Italy of Italian leather, and fully lined in leather with a skinny leather strap. No metal or logos: just the highest-quality leather and fine Italian workmanship. From the estate of a Northern California collector, this beautiful purse is a great find.
In 1985, a New York movie executive began buying French and English antiques. When she moved to California, she added California pottery and Asian porcelain to the mix. The Emporium Ltd. was born out of that first collection. Her habits haven’t changed: She still buys only what she’d want for herself, and that includes the spectacular scarves, jewelry, and bags in this collection. "Always buy a piece you love."
