This is a vintage Lucille de Paris ostrich skin handbag. When it comes to vintage, high quality, genuine exotic skin bags Lucille de Paris is the name to look for. This lovely, elegant bag features an exterior of off white ostrich skin, gold tone metal top clasp and trim and four gold tone metal feet. Its single handle is in great condition with no splits or cracking. The interior is lined in super soft kid leather and features a slip pocket and zip compartment on one side with a slip pocket, snap compartment and matching leather coin purse on the other. It is stamped "Lucille de Paris" with the crocodile logo on one side and "Made in USA" on the other. It has a fabric label that reads "Saks Fifth Avenue".
There are a couple of small depressions on the front of the purse and the bottom of the bag is not as flat as it once was. Aside from that this bag is in excellent condition. The interior, by the way, is pristine. The bag measures 10" X 8" (excluding handle) X 2 1/2" (base).
