Vintage Faux Crocodile Brass Pillow Purse ~ Can be used as a Clutch or Worn on the Shoulder ~ Very Good Condition.
You can party the night away with this darling evening bag. It has a hinged, brass metal case with an embossed, faux crocodile design on the front and back.
It measures just shy of 8" long x 4.75" wide x 2" deep with a securely locking, metal flap closure. The interior is lined in a smooth, eggplant purple velvet fabric with a beautiful lace trim (unable to capture in the pics, but rest assured, it is quality-made). The attached heavy chain shoulder strap measures 19.5" long and can be tucked inside for use as a clutch.
Circa 1960-80s, this purse is in very good condition but is not pristine. It has two tiny, barely noticeable dings on the front (which can be seen easier in the pics than in real life). There is light brass wear and a few age-related scuffs on the exterior which are to be expected (and can be polished up, if desired ~ we are leaving it in as-found condition). This purse makes a single popping noise when fully expanded (opens to 4.5" wide) ~ not really sure if this is the design and are mentioning it for accuracy.
There isn't a maker's label, but the quality of this piece certainly dictates one and it was most likely imported from India.
A fun blast from the past and the perfect accessory for a glitzy night of dinner and dancing.
