This lovely handbag is almost tote sized. It measures 12" wide, 9" tall and is 4 1/2" across the bottom. The straps are a 8" drop to the bag. The front has figure 8's in goldtone as a motif on the straps. The straps are very secure but one of the goldtone rivets is missing & the purse has been priced accordingly. The clasp is conical shaped, also in goldtone. The center of the purse opens & closes with a conical shaped clasp. There are two deep compartments on each side. The inside is lined in black taffeta and there is one zippered pocket lined in tan vinyl. The purse opens wide & will hold lots of contents. A great buy for a wonderful vintage handbag. I really like the straps as they are 1" wide and allow for a very comfortable fit.
