In the late 1940s, various New York handbag companies released lines of Lucite purses.
By 1950, Miami Beach had become the happening spot for wealthy American vacationers; its fun-in-the-sun, holiday appeal made it the perfect spot to sell Lucite purses. Many Florida-based manufacturers sprung up in the early ‘50s one of them was, Patricia of Miami.
Patricia of Miami Company:
In 1953 Morty Edelstein, formerly of Llewellyn, purchased Bag by Benne and opened up a new firm, Miami Handbag Mfg., Inc. (not the same as the firm "Florida Handbags"). They made unbreakable handbags under the new trademark of, Patricia of Miami, which was named for Mrs. Edelstine. They were know for their curly cue clasp as you can see in this particular handbag.
