History of Artefact Her grandma used it as a young lady. It was used when attending parties or evening events. She gave it to me ten years ago. She lived in Portsmouth when she was a little girl. During the war she was sent to Andover for four or five years.

Previous Owners Grandma
Special Memories 'It reminds me of grandma's house and searching through wardrobes when I was a little girl. There were lots of shoes, hats, jewellery and special treasures that I used to find. When I use the bag, it returns me to me childhood - a warm and safe feeling. It always reminds me of my grandma as well. I use the bag occasionally as it's very delicate.'
