1900-1910#39;s Racoon and Sheared Beaver Draw String purse by

A Very UNUSUAL early purse with a Racoon Head and Sheared Beaver tassels. I replaced missing eyes with eyes from another vintage fur piece, but otherwise, the purse is in wonderful condition. The sheared beaver tassels are dyed black and are extremely luxurious. Fur pom poms are 2 inches across (each), there are 2 pompoms on each side, with a pom pom at the slide. The Racoon head has ears, but they are stiff. The head itself is flexable, and not cracking.

I doubt there are many more of these out there! Great item for a collector! here is some interesting info on Holt, Renfrew Co. :

The company that was to become Holt Renfrew was founded as a hat shop in Quebec City, Canada, in 1837, by Irishman William Samuel Henderson. In 1849, William introduced furs into the business and three years later sold the shop to his brother John. In 1860. Historically renowned for fine furs, Holt Renfrew received the prestigious honour of five generations of royal warrants under Queen Victoria#39;s reign and appointed Furrier-in-Ordinary to her Majesty. In 1908, the firm became known as Holt, Renfrew and Co. Ltd. In the 1930s and 1940s, international designers were added and the oldest existing contract was secured with the house of Christian Dior for exclusive representation of its haute couture furs. In 1986. The past few years have seen the unveiling of two beautiful Holt Renfrew flagship stores in Vancouver and Calgary. In 2009, Holt Renfrew doubled the size of its Calgary store to 151,000 sq. ft. Holt Renfrew is recognized worldwide for its extraordinary shopping experience and is the leader in luxury retail in Canada. Holt Renfrew has nine stores in Canada: Toronto (three), Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver.
