This is a gorgeous large faux crocodile skin leather handbag which is in excellent condition from favourite high end brand Waldybag. It is in a shiny black mirror finish leather which is in excellent condition, minimal marks from age or use, the odd scuff to the base but nothing of note. The twin handles, which remain firm and strong. The leather to the front, back and sides is in a porosus crocodile imprint and quite lovely. The base, despite having no studs, has only minimal loss of shine from being placed on surfaces. The elegant gilt clasp (which opens the bag by squeezing together the sidesof the clasp)and gilt frame where visible are both still shiny with only minimal age related tarnish and scratches. The inside is lined in a stone beige suede, with leather edged slip pockets and a zipped pocket. The suede does bear minor signs of use, mainly pen marks and the suede itself is not squeaky clean, a little tired, well is is 60+ years old (see photos) but no stains.
This is an elegant grown up ladylike handbag, from top end brand Waldybag in a classic colour and timeless design. It would be perfect for any event where a smart and formal handbag is required, weddings, Ascot, Glyndebourne, Goodwood etc and will last for generations if properly looked after. It is classic and classy and we love it. Notwithstanding the less than pristine interior (and priced to reflect this) it is a vintage handbag so we think it would be a great gift for her.
It is 11" x 8.5" x 3"
