    Got it- p. 167 - Rainwater:

    Frank T. May Company, New York, N.Y.
    Rutherford , New Jersey

    Manufacturers and distributors of sterling sliver bags, 14K vanity and ladies' cigarette cases and novelties and jewelry.

    They were listed in various trade publications from 1896-1943. I agree that the handbag is C. 1920's.

    wow! All of you. Wow! And thanks. And WOW.

    Not sure if y'all been following my posting here but my mom picks up this stuff at yard sales. She suffers from a brain disease but no one can find the Limoge in a thrift store faster.

    I am grateful to you ladies!

    Just a small note that I edited a typo in my prior post, as my friend said the bag was probably 1920s. She did not say it was "probably 1920."
