This is a very fine vintage snakeskin bag - it is African in origin and dates to the 1950s.

It was made by Zimmerman Ltd - who were leading taxidermists in Nairobi.

The company was the second-largest taxidermy company in the World until it closed in 1977.

Paul Carl Zimmerman was the founder of the company. It was first established in 1929.

Dimensions: Width of the bag is 11 inches. From handle to the bottom of the bag is 15 inches Height of the main body of the bag is 7 inches. Depth of the bag is 3 1/2 inches.

It is in good vintage condition - all the stitching is intact - and there are no splits - the sides and under flap are made of leather. Inside - is the maker's name printed in gold.

The gold clasp is on the front and you twist to open. The bag is like a saddlebag and you lift up the flap to get inside - there are sections inside and some pockets. The gold-coloured metal swivel clasp is in excellent condition with no loss to the plating on it.

A top quality bag - made in Kenya in the mid-century. A nice grain to the snakeskin - which is still clean and shiny.

The bag is shown in my images as a handbag - but the strap can be adjusted and extended to that the bag can go over your shoulder.

It is nice and clean - with no grubbiness and no dirty interiors - you will certainly be pleased with it.

Fair price for this special vintage accessory.
