Information on an Ovenex Purse?

I am looking for any information on this item. It appears to be from around the 1940s and is an Ovenex creation. It was possibly an advertising item.

I had to dig into this because it fascinated me. I think this is a military mess kit by ovenex

I am trying to find more history on this. The pattern brings back nice baking memories. I just learned about the military connection. Going to dig more but wanted to get this out there!

I will try to learn more and post back!!

It has a liner in it thats kind of fuzzy like. If it was a military mess kit I really doubt it would have a liner like that. Although the military mess kit is an intriguing option. If you need more photos let me know. No marking on it anywhere but it is the Ovenex pattern.

Maybe this link to the made in Chicago museum can help figure it out:

It is possible it was a mess kit that someone altered for home use. I would love to see it in person. Please post back if they can help!

Ovenex made bakeware. My guess is that this is a case a salesman would use to carry samples of his wares in.

Where did the information about this being an 'Ovenex' creation come from? Are there any markings on the item to indicate the company or the date?
I know that it appears to be the 'Starburst' pattern but unusual item for an ovenware company to present as an adverting item.
The Ocenex Company was in business from 1945 through 1965 and is associated with the EKCO Company.

If this is from the Ovenex Company then you should ask your question on this site:
www.okeeffemuseum.org/.../

Probably the quickest way to find out what you is to post your picture and questions on the Reddit site. You will have to join and this site is not easy to use at first so if you have problems then you should ask one of the administrators for help in how and where to list. I would venture a guess that within 48 hours you will know everything about this item.

The one link you gave me is for the Georgia OKeeffe Museum Im guessing you missed posted the link. There is no marking or date on it. The pattern is Ovenex and I was told that it was Ovenex from the seller so I figured I would start there. I will check out Reddit

The museum has a lot of information about Ovenex and ECKO and may be interested in finding out if this really is an Ovenex 'gift'.

Please post on Reddit as they have a very high record for identifying all kinds of odd/rare/unusual things and usually in less than 48 hours.

This is an excellent site to help you with identifying vintage purses from 1940. Your purse is not there and the style is not even present in this era. I am not sure where the information came from or if it is stamped on the bottom of this bag. On the inside, I don't see any markings at all and I can't identify this as an Ovenex purse. I think you should take this to an antique shop in your area and see if you can find out a bit more about this item. What you are saying here doesn't fit with the area or even the maker of purses at this time.
