This is a gorgeous,
vintage brown Crocodile Handbag. Exquisitely handcrafted in France. 8" High, 10" Wide, 3 1/4" Deep, 6 1/4" Strap Drop
The exterior brown skins are shiny and in outstanding condition; with no
scratches or scuffs.
It has Gold Fittings, a Hard Frame, and a classic footed bottom.
The gold toned pull-tab opener works perfectly.
The interior is brown kidskin..
One side has an attached, fabric-lined coin purse that is 6"wide 4"high. It has a kiss-clasp closure.
A leather open pocket is behind the
coin purse. The other side has a zippered pocket and two two open pockets ......one is the
size to fit a lipstick. These pockets are fabric-lined.
It is stamped "Made In France" inside.
There is no manufacturer identification, leading me to believe that the owner
had it custom made when she lived in Paris in the 1950's and 1960's. (The owner was a friend.)
There is a tiny dent in the leather below the "Made In France" stamp
that looks to be made from the coin purse clasp.
The bottom of the interior shows some very minor indentations from previously
held contents. These indentations are barely noticeable.
The double strap handles are original and in very good condition, showing
little to no wear.
There is one spot on the handle (about
1/2” in length) that appears to have been repaired.
It looks as if one of the
scales started to separate or raise and was glued back in place.(This is not uncommon with Crocodile skins of
The handles are secured by
textured gold toned hardware.
From the excellent condition, this bag appears to be rarely used, and well
taken care of.
Perfect as a dressy daytime bag or elegant evening bag.
A sophisticated classic that will never go out of style!
It is as "in
vogue" today as it was in the 1960s.
An elegant treasure to be cherished for many years to come!
