Excellent vintage condition. This Timothy Hitsman iridescent snakeskin purse with lucite handle also has a snapping detachable gold chain for double duty as a shoulder bag.

This bag is a collector's delight in archival condition.The purse is 12" x 7" with a structured base of 2.2". The mouth of bag may be stretched to 6." The lucite handle is 5.5" in length and 1" in width. The shoulder chain is 48" long for a 24" drop. The interior zipper pocket is 6.5" x 3" and is sewn away from side of purse leaving an interior pocket w/out zipper of the same dimensions.

Timothy Hitsman (1934-2004) was a St. Louis native who became famous for his over-the-top shoes and bags at their peak in the high glamour days of the 80's. Using a rainbow palette, the finest imported leathers, and lucite and gold highlights, Hitsman captured the spirit of an America during a time when "nothing succeeded like excess" in the fashion choices represented via Dynasty,Falcon Crest, Bonfire of the Vanities, First Lady Nancy, and Wall Street.

Homage to champagne wishes... .
