Simple and unadorned. Sometimes that's all you need. These words describe this high quality snakeskin bag by Colombetti of Milan. Fashionistas who are "into" exotic skins know the brand Colombetti. Often mistaken for a Leiber bag, this brand has been producing bags since 1947. Their bags are all high quality and are made of different materials such as exotic skins, leather and rhodoid/lucite. Skilled craftsmanship and creative designs all define the Colombetti brand. This bag illustrates all this. The bag is medium size and it is very rounded. It is made from the skins of the python snake that are dyed black. The skins are glazed and they have a high shine. The design incorporates the larger scales on the sides while the smaller scales are in the middle segments. The skins are supple and pliable. There is tight ruching at the top. This results in dramatic folds and pleats. The bag is very bulbous and has a somewhat "poofy" appearance. The frame is covered with the black python snakes. It has a scalloped shape. There is a long python carry strap with a drop of 20". This strap can be tucked inside when the bag is used as a clutch. The bag opens with a prominent gold push up tab. The inside is lined with a black leather (faux or real?). There is a zippered pocket. The gold tone identification label is affixed inside. The inside is in great condition. The bag measures 8 1/2"w x 8 "h x 1 1/2"d. The bag is in wonderful condition with only the most minute vintage signs ,if any. I don't think this bag was ever used, if so, it wasn't often. A simple well made bag such as this is a timeless and classic item. This bag goes with everything and can be used almost at any time. Its versatility can't be beat. Sometimes that's all you need. Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
