This 1930’s lizard skin handbag has timeless elegance with the flair of a great design. It is a wristlet with an pleated unstructured body which gives it soft lines. The purse is deep brown in color and was created from Tegu Lizard skin. It has a metal zipper closure in good working condition which opens to reveal a lighter brown faille lining with two slip pockets and the label which says “A Wilshire Reg Original.”

The soft-styled handbag measures 6 by 9 ½ by 3 inches with the oval bottom measuring 8 by 4 ½ inches. The wristlet strap is 1 ¼ inches with a 6 ½ inch drop. The skins are in lovely vintage condition, soft and supple with no cracks or tears. There is a bit of rubbing on the edges and on the fabric piping, but overall the exterior is in excellent condition. There are, however, issues with the interior, and this has been reflected in the price. The lining definitely shows wear with some frayed areas as well as a bit of hand-stitching by the original owner. Even taking these minor issues into consideration, this is a great find. This Wilshire Original is a very stylish vintage handbag. Wonderful design! Fabulous accessory!
