Vintage 1960's Flores of Mexico Tooled Leather Top Handle Handbag.
I love this bag! Classic design and style, with a sewn in interior snap purse / change purse.
Purse measures 11 3/4" wide and 8" tall with the straps adding another 6". The 4" wide bottom makes gives it nice stability. The interior is divided into 2 compartments, with a slip pocket on one side and the nicely sized change purse ( 4.5" wide by 3.5" tall ) on the other. I always like give an opening width on purses and while this one expands larger than the 7" that I'm giving it, I probably wouldn't recommend opening it too much further or it will eventually wear down the bag.
You will notice some color variations in the photos at right. This is only a lighting factor. The first two photos are the true color of the purse but I did want to add the one photo showing the handles up, that photo is slightly darker than the true color with the photo of the base being slightly lighter but once again, the overall color of the purse is even and the variations are just a matter of lighting.
Label reads as follows: Genuine Leather Flores' Bags Hand-Tooled Hecho en Mexico DF
Excellent condition, inside and out with some minimal interior marks as seen in the last photos at right.
1960's / 1970's
