This is a gorgeous little dainty and ladylike handbag, made from turtle skin in a rare blond caramel colour. It has a gorgeous and pretty gilt clasp. It is in excellent almost pristine condition, of excellent quality and very rare, turtle skins were used as a cheaper alternative to crocodile 'back in the day' but for a relatively short period so not many have survived. The turtle skins are in fantastic condition with no splitting or cracking. The clasp is unusualand very attractive in deep gilt and a tortoise shelle effect leather with no loss of gilt, The handle is firms and strong with no issues and is attached to the handbag with gilt fixings with a crisscross pattern, a sign of the quality of the handbag. There is a deeper shade to the front of the handbag underneath the flap owing to being hidden from the light over the years. The inside is lined in brown leather which is clean with no marks or stains, the underneath of the flap is lined in a gorgeous glossy tortoiseshell effect cream/caramel leather.
This a fabulous little bag, it looks high end and good quality because it is! It will accessorise any smart or formal outfit for any occasion and is in a very versatile and wearable colour. So cute, we love it.
Perfect gift for her.
It is 9" x 6.5" x 1"
