1950s Box Purse Vintage Faux Reptile Skin Dark Emerald Green Handbag

  • $55.00


This great 1950s vintage faux reptile skin (vinyl) handbag is a wonderful dark green emerald color.

The box purse features a fold over flap and twist button clasp closure. Upon opening the bag, there are 3 thin pockets on the outside of the actual purse. The interior is lined in light brown vinyl and is actually one compartment but it has a zippered pocket that is suspended in the center.

Extra special - we're selling this pocketbook the way we found it: inside is a vintage rubber squeeze coin purse that matches the lighter green color in the faux skin and an UNUSED vintage ladies handkerchief, still with the original label attached, that goes beautifully with the purse! I couldn't bear to separate the three - they just belong together!

**I do NOT clean unused vintage hankies. You may wish to have this handkerchief cleaned prior to use. Even unused vintage hankies tend to collect a bit of dust over the years and may show a bit of darkening around the folds. This is why I do not iron them prior to sale. Ironing the hanky without prior cleaning can set in any dust or discoloration. [
