1940s Alligator Bag / 40s Brown Lizard Leather Bag / Reptile Skin Kelly Bag Purse
Vintage 1940s / 1950s rust brown alligator handbag. This beautiful, kelly style, purse is a modest rectangle with two handles – one stiff one shaped like a crescent above the chunky brass hardware, while the soft, larger one straddles it above. Interior is dark brown leather and features one small slit pocket with a larger, zippered pocket up above.
Label: no brand on the purse leather but there is a stamp on the interior brass hinge that is hard to make out but looks like it spells "Cyrhnos" or something to that effect (see very last pic).
Condition: good with no cracking or tearing on the exterior of the purse, but there is a slight amount of cracking on one end, on the interior of the handles. The vinyl inside the purse also has a bit of light staining and scuffing. Very usable with lots of life left in her, but priced accordingly!
Length at bottom 9"
Height with handle 13"
Depth when open 5 1/2" (at the top, opening)
