If you are an avid Dooney & Bourke Collector, you have come across bags like this and, like me, might have called them Small Horseshoe bags.
However that is wrong. The Small Horseshoe is a different bag which I will cover in a future post.
While these bags are indeed in the Horseshoe Collection, their official name is The Porthole Clutch. Here is the page from the 1980s catalog, the only catalog I have that shows this particular bag.
“A clutch handbag is a narrow, handheld bag with no strap”
