Not 100%sure how old this is. Guessing from the 60's. This is a really cool snakeskin purse, with a unique front closure. I labeled it a shoulder bag but I actually prefered to carry it as a messanger bag across my chest. The strap is adjustable so you can wear it multiple ways. It is in great condition with almost wear, considering it's age. I believe this style is also refered to as a "camera bag" style purse because it's hard bodied, not colapsible. This is a true great find! Good luck.
