This is an unusual smaller size handbag or handled purse. 

It dates to the 1940s or 1950s - and it is has lettering inside on the lid which reads:  GENUINE ALLIGATOR / HECHO EN CUBA.

It has a vintage handcrafted feel to it - it is a simple wee bag with no internal pockets etc. 

Love all the little leather stitching to the edges - and to the base as a decorative detail. The base section is rigid and not soft in its finish. 

All nice and clean - and in good condition. 

The little alligator head on the lid has little realistic glass eyes as photographed. Yikes - all those wee teethies! 


This bag is now 70 years old - and has historical connotations - I certainly don't condone the practice being continued today - this is being sold as a more of a piece of social history.  I would not sell modern pieces. 

There is a little brass toggle to the front for opening and closing the little bag. 

The handle is short and for you to clutch - and certainly not a shoulder strap. 

Dimensions: rough diameter is 5 inches. The height of the bag (main body) is about 3 1/4 inches. 

The length of the handle is about 6 inches drop. 

A more unusual one of this size and shape - and also made in pre-Castro Cuba.
