Unusual tri-tone mod rockabilly purse in black patent vinyl, white smooth leather (I think) and brown hand painted "leopard" print leather. Black satin lining. Open the metal clasp and you've got access to the main compartment with metal zipper area, then flip up the white wavy flap and there's a "secret compartment." So secret that I found a "Membership Financial Report" for the "Friendship Missionary Baptist Church" here in Tucson, Arizona dated August 1968. And lucky you, I'm including it! Special thanks to Allene Jackson for her 62¢. And to Cheryln Ann Young for that shiny dime.
OK, back to the purse...
Made by Lennox bags, it's in good vintage condition with a few scratches on the back and a little all over wear. Nuthin' much. Be advised that there's a small crack on the white panel, where it folds over on the RH side, and a faint blue pen mark on that as well, although it gets covered up when the leopard flat is closed. Back has a scuff. Bag has a few light flaws, typical of a bag from the '50s or '60s. Top flap is leather, white flap appears to be leather and the black part appears to be plastic. It is not new, or perfect. But it is fabulous.
Check out the back photo. Hard as I tried getting out of the shot, the super shiny reflective surface acted as a mirror. So I got a little artistic with it. Peace.

12" wide, by a little over 6" tall. (Excluding handle, natch.)
2-1/2" wide at bottom.
