Again, from my personal collection:

A really wonderful rare period clutch in rich brown alligator or crocodile with hornback motif in the center of the front, back and flap. It dates from the 1930s to perhaps the 1940's, but the interior looks older than 40's.

The edges are laced in slightly lighter brown leather.

There are 2 snap closure on either side and a glove strap in the back, which is also centered with hornback. Back in the 30's and early 40's, you would tuck your gloves through the strap when you weren't wering them!

The interior is a soft camel leather with 2 open compartments, and an additional slip section in between to slip in something flat.

Attached to the side of the front compartment is a change purse with a snap flap closure.

I don't think it has been ever used.

SIZE:
* 7 1/4" long x 5 4 1/2" high
* the back glove strap is 6" long

CONDITION:
* Excellent condition for its age and clean inside. The only apparent issue is that the fold in the center has wear ( see last photo) where the sheen has worn off but there is no overt open cracked or torn leather. I would re-glaze the entire piece but I am not familiar with how to do that!
