Location July 1947:

Witt-Sattler Associates
347 Fifth Avenue Room 510
New York, NY

Witt-Sattler Associates represented a number of handbags makers that were not located in the New York area and small concerns that didn't want the expense of a Manhattan showroom of their own. This arrangement allowed store buyers to see the handbag lines of a number of makers at one location and order there. In July 1947, Witt-Sattler Associates represented Chas. Resnick & Sons, Wm. Simon Co., Keystone Handbag Co., Parkway Handbag Co. and Laurel Handbag Co., whose corde' pouch is featured in this ad. (July 1947 Handbags Illustrated, page 47)

The angular Art Modern style of this charming calf leather bag was hot for Back to School in 1947. The bag was made by Keystone, who was represented by Witt-Sattler. The bags wholesaled for $10 and came in black, brown, wine and green.

"This stand-out bag in calf will take top scholastic honors. It is summa cum laude in style and will take wearer and viewer by storm. A Keystone Bag at Witt-Sattler." (July 1947 Handbags Illustrated, page 37)
