My great aunt had fine taste. While a bank teller in Chicago in the 1930's and 1940's, she made some well-chosen purchases, one of which is this lovely crocodile clutch. It has a snap closure which works well, flap closure lining is ecrase goat.

The clutch back side has a crocodile loop where one could hang an accessory, as well as an open-top pocket for gloves or other items to be handily available.

Inside are additional pockets, one metal closure pocket for secure items lined in taffeta, two open-top pockets lined in a sturdy cotton. There are two sewn storage areas in one of the pockets for personal items, as a compact, lipstick.

Solid, has a rich feel and a warm tone. Inside a label is sewn, "ECRASE Crocodile Goat".

This fine clutch has been stored in a steamer trunk for over 50 years.

Measures 6' x 9 1/2"x 1". Very good vintage condition.

E-mail with any questions. I am happy to combine orders and shipping.

International customers, please contact me for shipping costs, and I will add your country's shipping fee to the listing.
