This is a great vintage alligator handbag, circa 1940-1950's. I've seen many of these but never one in this condition. The leather is in excellent shape and the straps are not cracked. The snaps are hard to open and close threfore I would not recommend snapping the flap. The flap stays closed on its own. I also noticed there are some areas where the coating of the lacing used on the edges has worn off and the string like inner cording is exposed. This is noted on the top where the handles attach and on the back there is a one inch area like this. (Please zoom in on pics) The alligator has glass eyes, all his teeth and most toenails, six are missing mainly becuse the stitching was so close they fell out. This isn't that noticeable unless you really look closely. The inside is imaculate with two compartments and a smaller zippered pocket in the back section. There is a stamp inside that reads,"real alligator, made in Cuba". Overall considering the age I would say this bag is in very good condition.
Measurements-11"W X 7H X 3 1/4", strap measures 19" from side to side.
