Armadillo Bag, c. 1940
Glazed armadillo skin, leather interior
Provenance: found in Wisconsin
A very rare armadillo handbag in clean, glossy condition. Wonderful, lustrous finish, and fascinating details--his ears, claws, and ridged back are all gorgeously incorporated into a handbag equal parts art, style, and natural history exhibit. Exquisite and arresting.
Turn-lock closure at front flap. Built-in mirror under flap. Leather interior.
Very good condition. Some damage to his ears, pictured. The rest of the bag is in pristine condition.
