    Hi There everyone,
    This purse has an interesting clasp that opens when you squeeze the strap of the looped handle together. Is there a name for such a clasp?
    Also, not sure of dating here....thoughts?
    Thanks for any help

    It looks 60s to me - not sure about the name of the clasp lock though...

    Thanks Jonathan. I can't find any reference to Creed other than a perfume company.

    Yikes. Just realized I used “Creed’s” in the title of this post but the label is “Creed”

    I've found another possible label this was made for "charles creed" (apparantly the outfit Mata Hari was killed in was designed by his father (according to wikipedia!). Could this be the design house of this purse? I don't see him in the Label Resource.
