Vintage 1970s Eel Skin purse, gray leather handbag, clutch style. Measurements in inches: 11 inches x 7 inches with a 36 inch detachable strap. Strong and ready to fit into your vintage wardrobe.
Fold over (large clutch style) purse is made with dove gray eel skin. The front / fold over part is ruched with a pleat style finish. There are four compartments inside, two of which are zippered. A small one and a full length one. So, you lots of sections for organizing. The accordion style construction is great.
The fold over part of the purse is lined in gray suede. The rest of the inside is lined in a very strong, clean gray textured polyester. The snap closure works perfectly.
The long strap can be removed although I do not think this was ever done.
Minor wear to the eel skin with no tears or rips. This so soft leather is also very Strong. The lining is free of marks or tears. The stitching on the body of the purse is great.
There are a couple of light marks to the suede. The strap has several places along the edge that need to be glued down. The underside is clean and free of significant wear.
No tears but please note, the color underneath, is not as even as it is on the front or the inside or the back, which are quite nice.
The label is ; GENUINE EEL SKIN / MADE IN KOREA.
Circa 1975, you will enjoy this purse for many years!
