Look closely at the patchwork panels of this Caprice and you will see that the skins are in very good condition as this is a late sixties model. The leather handles are supple and soft for comfort as this is a true valise and was not designed to be shoulder carried. a strap stows attached inside or can be removed allowing you to carry this fine handbag as a clutch.
The original Caprice metal hang tag is present on the zipper pull.
The leathers are clean and only on the bottom corners, there is just the slightest amount of wear that can be remedied with leather color conditioner. This beautiful Caprice is so nice and can carry all of your essentials including a full-sized tablet computer with all of the peripherals with ease.

The dimensions are MASSIVE at 12” L x 7” H x 6” D. The handles afford a 6” drop. That is a long enough drop to slip your arm through to carry.
