This is a high-end, genuine Italian leather expansion purse. It features brown embossed leather in an alligator print, accordion file construction with reinforced bottom and corners, a gold tone metal double spring-loaded clasp and a 3-way adjustable strap handle. The interior is lined in soft kid leather with three sections, two zip compartments, one slip pocket and two built-in coin purses. It is stamped "Genuine Leather Made in Italy". The initials H.L.B are on the inside top right corner of the bag.
Condition? Near mint with the only sign of wear being a crease (not a crack) where the handle bends when not in use. The leather, both inside and out, has been thoroughly conditioned and is in excellent condition. The purse measures 10" X 7" (excluding handle) X 3" at the base which expands near the top to a whopping 7". The handle can be adjusted to measure 30", 26" or 16". The accordion file construction keeps the purse stable in an upright position. This lovely vintage bag simply has it all!
