Vintage New Unused Clutch Handbag Purse in Rust/Brown/Black Python Snakeskin.
This is the find of the century! Years ago, in the 1980s, my husband was the recipient of a gift from Kenton Leather goods of four beautiful items made in python snakeskin. He made me a purse (clutch) to match those pieces. In those days, this great quality of snake was hard to come by. MUSI had some surplus and offered them to the Kenton owners. The interior is a brown moire with one zippered side pocket.
P.S. I never used any of the five items............just put them away in my closet. When cleaning out my closet, I found an unmarked carton and have photographed some of the contents. I listed the eyeglass case a while back and am now listing the purse. The contents of the carton were put away and I have to locate them again. One rarely finds vintage python skin purses like this clutch purse.
12” x 7” – with a 2” gusset; weighs 9 ounces
Python skins provide the most impressive markings and bold colors. The contrasting colors of rust brown and black on this vintage python snakeskin clutch purse are a real head turner and a rare find. The vintage exotic python skins are soft, supple, free of flakes and cracking.
Colors sometimes appear differently on different computer monitors. The white in the photographs is the reflection of the flash.
