Large Vintage Genuine Alligator Kelly Style Handbag Purse

There's a reason this classic 1950s vintage alligator handbag looks so good. The woman we bought it from had just spent $75 to have this bag cleaned and refurbished, inside and out, by a leather professional. The beautifully textured skin was polished, stitching was secured, the inside tan suede was cleaned. The makeover enhanced this classic Kelly style bag to last for decades more. The original brass hardware patina was left as it was as some prefer that.

The bag is bigger than most of this kind...measures 12 inches across by 8 inches high to top of clasp. It's 4 inches wide at bottom. The snap-over clasp is good and secure.

Inside, there's a side compartment with a snap closure. On the other side, there's both a zippered and open compartment. The coloring is even on the exterior though light picks up varied natural tones of the leather. No stains or odors to the interior. There's no maker's name (possibly rubbed off when cleaned). It's obvious that this was a fine quality handbag back in it's heyday and the nice thing is...its 'heyday' is back for more.

P.S. The advice from the leather man...don't store this in plastic.
