Description

Lovely vintage handbag!

1950's - early 60's era, by Dover USA. The bag is a deep rich brown color in faux leather embossed with a crocodile finish a.k.a. moc croc! Could also be lizard - definitely in the reptile family. Sturdily constructed, as befits the time period, it's elegantly finished with an antiqued brass-toned tilt closure clasp, purse frame and hardware. Inside, the large inner compartment is fully lined with deep green satiny cloth interior, gold-stamped with designer Dover USA beneath the interior zipper pocket.

The reptile embossed purse features a single strap, double looped for strength and style and it sits on a footed bottom to protect the finish of the faux leather. Measures approximately 7" x 10" x 3" with a 4.5" handle drop.

Very Good vintage condition with no major flaws to note. No tears or stains in lining. Very small scuffs on bottom corner edges of bag. Small amount of wear at edges of hardware and clasp, where the finish has rubbed off. This looks quite natural and blends well with the antiqued brassy color of the metal. Extremely well-constructed and gently used.

Additional policies

VINTAGE NOTE: As we who love them know, vintage pieces are special. They bring us style from another era and give us a unique look that can't be found at the mall clone stores. They are often wearable works of art. They also often carry marks from use or even from just being in storage, which can add to their style and give them character. Make sure that you are comfortable with this idea when purchasing vintage to wear or collect. I will do my best to describe and photograph well for you.

If you have a question about the condition or the size of an item, contact me and I will be glad to send/post more pictures or take more measurements, so that you know what you're getting!

SIZING NOTE: To ensure you get the best out of your item, please be sure to compare the listing size and measurements with your own size to get the best fit. Vintage sizing can be quite different than what we are familiar with today. It's often best to measure a similar item of your own clothing that fits the way you prefer, to do a comparison - this can be more accurate than measuring your body, since you may forget to add an inch or two for wiggle-room.

WISH LIST: Is there a vintage item you have never been able to find? Let me know - I may have it in my yet-to-be-listed pile! I would be glad to post it here for your consideration.

Vintage-INSPIRED: We have lovely brand new and gently used items with a vintage 'look and style' available elsewhere on the web. Contact for more info: fadaddict [at] gmail [dot] com.
