Canister Purse in Vienna

May 17, 2017 One of my Canister Purses was in attendance at the opening reception of an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in Vienna on the rise of that city’s department stores in the nineteenth century. Pictured here is the owner of the purse, Roz McNulty, with her friend Lynn Katey, both from Vancouver. Roz is the Vice-President of the Society for the Museum of Original Costume and is looking very elegant in a lovely vintage gown. Both the President and Vice-President of Austria were at the opening reception as well. I’m sure they saw my purse – and must have admired it quietly to themselves.
