Awesome Authenic Alligator
Handbag with double straps or one strap Shoulderbag
Hand Tooled laces, made in Cuba by E L
Bag is Vintage, it has two compartments on the inside, divider seperates. One open mirror pocket. Inside is gold colored suede. The bag closes with a snap on a double flap front. The alligators head & feet on the front, extends over the top of the bag, and his back legs on the back of the bag. Can be carried with a double strap that has a drop of 20", or can be adjusted with the snaps to make a shoulder bag, with a drop of 36".
Texture & color are Beautiful, a richer color than pics portray. I lightened the pics to show detail work. The bag measures 8" tall x 9 1/4" wide x 3 1/4" across the bottom.
Good Vintage Condition. The bag does have problems, the bottom of the bag on one end, that extends the length of the bag has came unglued. Leather is under this loose area, and it needs to be glued back. I wanted to leave the bag in the original shape. One small rip on the inside (see pic) a rub on the strap (see pic) & a small dark spot on the right side of the bottom, about the size of a dime. Very clean & smoke free
