This is a very fine vintage lizard handbag.
It dates to the 1950s.
Dimensions: Width of the bag is 10 inches. From handle to the bottom of the bag is 13 1/2 inches Height of the main body of the bag is 6 inches. Depth of the bag is 3 inches.
It is in good vintage condition - all the stitching is intact - and there are no splits to the sides or nasty scuffs to the base of the bag.
The handle is fine and firm - there is no splitting or wear to the lizard skin on the handles where it attaches to the metal handle loops on the top of the bag.
I love the little clasp on the top of the bag - it is made of dull brass and takes the form of three little dancing waves. You tilt the clasp back and the bag opens up - and to close - it snaps shut.
Grey suede interior - which is relatively nice and clean for its age - no pen marks or horrible smells. I have cleaned it before listing so ready to use. Inside there is a large zipped pocket - where you can store your mobile phone and keep it separate from the other contents - and little flat pouches against the side fo the bag -for keeping notebooks, mirror or tickets etc. All the zipper are made of metal - as you would expect from a vintage back.
The exterior is nice and clean - and has a nice vintage feel to it - so will look great with a mid-century or rockabilly look - what else can I say - its a nice one...
As mentioned - now over 70 years old - nice and clean - with no grubbiness and no dirty interiors - you will certainly be pleased with it.
Fair price for this special vintage accessory.
