1950s Croc Skin Leather Bag with Adjustable Strap
Lovely 1950s textured snakeskin shoulder bag, made with high quality brown crocodile leather. This is a beautiful bag, practical with the long strap, a nice size to fit all of the modern gals things in, and still perfect for the late 1940s, early 1950s outfit. The croc skin has a wonderful texture that is accentuated by the brown tonal colours, and the pattern is subtle but classic print. The clasp is very unusual, the wedge slides up to release the flap, which opens to show lots of room for all the essentials. A gorgeous bag that would match well with lighter 1940s looks or vintage tiki styled outfits, pop on some bamboo bangles, a pair of wooden wedges and a sun hat......oh and don't forget the cocktail in the coconut!
