This is a really beautiful bag! It's larger than most purses, it stands at about 10 1/4", the handle makes it about 16" when held upright. Bag is 12 1/8" wide at the bottom, and it is 3 1/8-3 1/4" inches deep at the bottom tapering up to the top where it closes. The black lizard is still shiny and beautiful, and it's lined in black leather. The gold/brass hardware is still shiny and works great!

Purse is in very good vintage condition, the only "issues" are the sides by the hardware are a bit white (they might just need to be cleaned or oiled or something simple), and the inside has some white smudges (fingerprints probably) that may come out with cleaning. I haven't done anything to the bag, and it's beautiful just the way it is, but you may want to take it to a professional to see if they can make it "perfect"! Other than those little things, everything looks great, the handle and the bottom/sides don't show any wear.

Tag says Sterling U.S.A. genuine lizard, and there's a stamp above it that I think says "leather lined", but it's really hard to read. There are two slots inside, and one zippered compartment with a goldtone (maybe brass) zipper that works beautifully.

If you would like to see additional pictures, just let me know, I'm happy to forward them to you.
