This purse was discovered truly down the rabbit hole: at the bottom of a trunk of rumpled old clothes. It was in rough shape at the time I found it but it deserved resurrecting. It has been saddle soaped and carefully buffed with a soft cloth and the interior compartment spent 3 full months stuffed with lavender from my garden last summer. The result was worth it!

The bag is an envelope clutch in pebbled leather that is 10.5 inches across and 7
inches tall. It closes with a snap clasp and the interior is lined in black faille with a mirror pocket on one side.The interior metal zip is in nice shape and works well.

There was one badly skinned patch about an inch long on the top. It has been restained and is not a large detraction due to the age of this clutch. If I were keeping it I would polish it gently with black polish and a leather treatment along the bottom edges where the surface has worn from being carried. It has a loop on the back which lets you hold it or alternatively fasten it on a belt

The decoration on it is a carved scottie head in applejuice bakelite. I seriously thought of just removing the scottie and tossing the bag but it was just cool to not bring it back to life. So 30s, I can picture a movie star with this tucked under one arm and pulling on her gloves to go out.

This is a very vintage item and I have described the wear and the shape of it as fully as possible. It would be lovely to carry and lovely in a collection.

I will ship anywhere the buyer is willing to pay shipping. Please convo me for exact shipping costs for international shipping.
