Here is a great looking Vintage Faux Reptile Chocolate Brown Convertible Purse in excellent condition, ca. 1960s.
This purse may have been manufactured by 'After Five'. The faux skin is very similar to another faux reptile bag I have listed that is marked, `After Five". This little bag measures 9" long. The gusset is 2 7/8" at the base and tapers to 7/8" at the top. It stands 5 ½" tall. The fold over flap has a snap closure.
A nice feature to this bag is that the 30" gold tone chain slips completely into the bag so it can used as a clutch. The chain is fastened to the inside of purse by 2 sturdy metal loops. This chain is not the common plain link type commonly found on these bags. It's an attractive gold tone twist chain with ½" gold tone cylinders placed about every 1 ½" along the length of the chain.
Inside the bag is lined with chocolate brown grosgrain fabric. There is a slip pocket on one side with lighter brown grosgrain lining.
This smart looking bag is in excellent vintage condition with NO breaks, rips, stains or repairs. It is pressed vinyl. All gold tone hardware is secure and intact.
Perfect for day into evening!
