Wild 1970s clutch in diagonal stripes of different exotic skins. Thin, envelope style with brass snap closure. Diagonal stripes have irregular edges, giving it a kind of zebra stripe effect. Interior is lined in a plain, lighter color leather, could be faux, but it smells leather-y to me. It's very smooth but has tiny pores, so I can't guarantee one way or the other. Same with the brown piping around the edges- looks faux from the front but the back is suede-like from what I can see. The snakeskin is definitely authentic. One interior zip pocket. Clutch has no strap nor any hardware for attaching one. No tags, but this was purchased with several by Caprice from the same era that were very similar in style. The hardware is similar, so I believe this one was also made by Caprice.

Condition is excellent- almost no signs of wear. There is a teeny bit of the color worn off the piping on the bottom exterior corners, and the interior lining has some darker lines where it comes into contact with the piping on the lip of the opening. Neither one is very noticeable unless you are looking for it. Otherwise all the snakeskin is still glossy & smooth, with no fading to the colors.

Measures about 11.5" long by 7.5" tall.
