This is a beautiful vintage rustic floral hand tooled saddle brown leather purse. I believe it is circa 1960’s and most likely made in Mexico (though there are no labels inside). This great-looking purse is made of a thick and somewhat rigid saddle brown leather which is covered with a hand tooled design depicting a stylized floral and foliage motif. It has a leather shoulder strap (which can be detached and doubled over to shorten from shoulder to hand length). It has dark brown leather whip-stitched edges, brass tone metal hardware, and a fold over flap with a metal twist lock clasp. The interior is composed of a central compartment, and two full length brown leather pockets. This purse has been carefully stored and shows very little to no signs of wear. There is some patina on the brass hardware but overall this purse is in excellent vintage condition!
The purse measures 6″ high by 10 1/2″ wide. The base measures 3″ across, tapering to the top. The shoulder strap drop measures 16 1/2″, and when doubled over, the shoulder strap drop measures 7″.
