This vintage convertible clutch is soft and luxurious to the touch and so elegant looking. The deep maroon colored clutch is made of genuine eel skin with a suede interior. The clutch is an envelope design with a flap that closes with a magnetic snap, and it has an accordion bottom. The top of the flap is structured, so it holds its shape beautifully, and the edges of the flap are embellished with a stitched band. The suede interior has a small zippered pocket and a large central zippered pocket which divides the bag into two compartments. The clutch converts to a shoulder bag strap with a strap which snaps to rings on the upper sides.
The matching wallet is also made of eel skin. The flap is edged with a stitched band which helps the soft leather keep its shape. It has two slip pockets; the first extends the depth of the wallet, and the second is the depth of one fold. It also has a zippered pocket, a slip pocket for a check book, clear vinyl slip pockets for cards, and one coin pocket with a decorative kiss clasp.
The clutch measures 11 by 7 inches and the handle has a 16 inch drop. The wallet measures 7 ½ by 4 inches when closed and 7 ½ by 10 inches when open. Both the clutch and the wallet are in excellent vintage condition, showing little or no use. There is a tiny bit of bumping on one corner, a couple of light scuff marks, and several dark spots which are actually part of coloration of the leather. Neither the wallet nor the clutch have any stains, spots, tears, holes, or scents. The clear vinyl credit card pockets show a bit of age discoloration and pressure marking, but the wallet is otherwise in excellent condition. This stylish and versatile vintage clutch with its matching wallet is great for any occasion.
