Black Crocodile Skin Beauty Case

This black crocodile skin beauty case is difficult to date. It could come from the 50s right up to the 70s I guess. Anyway it has a timeless elegance. Today I think it could double for a very superior briefcase. This is a real one off! If you want to be noticed in the boardroom then this is way to do it!

This black crocodile skin beauty case is difficult to date. It could come from the 50s right up to the 70s I guess. Anyway it has a timeless elegance. Today I think it could double for a very superior briefcase. I’ve never had one or see one before and it is a lovely thing to behold.

The side and top panels have a slightly padded appearance and the croc skin retains its gloss finish. The fittings are gilt with two lockable clasps on top – no key unfortunately. The two rigid handles are attached to gilt swivel bases and the bottom of the bag is raised off the surface by four gilt stud feet. Inside the case is lined with black leather and the space is divided by a leather zipped pocket. One side is open with a very large open pocket on the side. This has a further smaller open pocket attached with a lipstick holder at either end. The other side has an adjustable leather strap which snakes through loops which can be sized to fit various bottles. This could easily be removed if you wanted to use it as a briefcase.

The case measures 14”/35.5 cms wide and is 10”/25.5 cms high. The width is 6.5”/16.5 cms across the bottom and is just over 3”/8 cms wide across the top. The handles stand 3.5”/9 cms high.

This is a real one off! If you want to be noticed in the boardroom then this is way to do it!
