Offering a 1950s vintage, dark brown, Tegu lizard skin Kelly handbag. Lizard skins and leather both inside and out are in super condition. Fold-over frame on top and sides finished in matching lizard with gold tone edges. Push-up clasp in gold tone. There's also a decorative ring on the front below the clasp. Uptown chic, very Mad Men.

A single, reptile handle is lined/reinforced on the bottom in dark brown leather. It moves on rectangular gold tone swivel rings. The reptile skin on the handle is in perfect condition. There are four short, round, gold tone metal feet at the base.

Inside, this purse is lined in rich, beige leather, in immaculate condition. There are 2 open compartments on one side and a single compartment on the other side, edged in brown leather. There is some tarnish on the inside of the gold frame that does not affect the bag's overall condition.

Square in shape, this purse measures 9 inches high X 9 1/2 inches wide. The base measures 9 inches X 2 1/2 inches.

As stated, all of the lizard skin and the leather interior are intact and in perfect condition, with no cracks, tears, or wear spots. It's extremely rare to find reptile purses with the skins and leather interiors in such well tended condition.

Only the gold tone clasp shows some age, with horizontal scratches to the brass that give it some character and almost seem to match the reptile patterns. It may be possible for the buyer to have this piece re-brassed to look new, if that is the desired effect for this nearly 70 year old purse. I, for one, prefer this touch of vintage effect.

Packaged securely for safe arrival. Please contact me for overseas or expedited shipping charges.
