With examples held in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the iconic handbag company Koret was a beacon for style when it was established in 1929 by Richard Koret. By the 1940s Koret was a leader in the handbag industry. The company was eventually acquired by Michael Gordon, when the Richard Koret was killed in a plane crash and ran it until the late 1990s. Many great examples of this luxury brand can be found on collectable vintage sites with prices ranging from $150 to $5000.
