Wow, this is the neatest handtooled purse/clutch. It is also the most unusual that I have come across. I believe that it is a folded newpaper clutch, but it could be used to contain items when you are traveling. I do know that it is really beautiful. The outsides of both sides are handtooled and carved cowhide. The motif is beautiful maple leaves that are in groups of threes. Just really lovely. If you open out the clutch inside you will see two change pockets with snaps. One has an opening for a photo holder, (which is not present) the other is a accordian pleated pocket for change. Above these two is a full length zippered pocket for bills? On the opposite side is another full length pocket that has a flap and a twist catch, when opened it has a zippered pocket also. I am thinking important papers, such as a passport or ID papers. It does not have any closure between the two halves. In other words your arm would be holding it closed. The whole piece is in like new condition with the exception of a roughed up mark visible in the photo. This may have been a travel folio circa 1950's-60's due to the different pockets. All I know is that it is really neat and looks great under your arm. Very heavy duty leather.
