Antique (?) Western Tapestry Doctor Bag/Handbag?

    Hello everyone! I found another cool piece and wanted to share. No inner label but the identical ones that I found online were produced for the Smithsonian Institute (see attached listings). The hardware looks antique but the tapestry and inside has me questioning that. Any insights would be greatly appreciated! Y’all are the best.

    I remember tapestry bags like this were popular in the 1980s. They had the same kind of metal finish. Let’s see what others here think.

    Definitely 1980s. There was a HUGE doctor's bag trend then and tapestry too.
