Join Jessamyn Reeves-Brown in an exploration of Work-bags, purses, tobacco-bags, carriage-bags, carpet bags, shoe-bags, watch-pockets, reticules ... while there wasn't really a mid-19th-century equivalent to the modern tote-your-life-around handbag, much as we'd like there to be, there were an amazing array of special-purpose fabric "baskets," pockets, and bags made at home by diligent fingers. Whether you are a city mouse of fashion or a country mouse with more practical needs, you can enrich your impression with an understanding of the styles and uses of mid-century bags.
