Dark Blue Turtle Skin Box Bag by Castiglione

This is a fun 60s - very dark blue turtle skin box bag made by the Italian designer Castiglione.  The bag is highlighted by four gilt corners on the base and one either side of the front flap.  The complex construction opens to show quite a good space which would hold the essentials!

This is a rather unusual use of a lovely navy coloured turtle skin.  The base has a solid square section at the bottom which is just over 1"/3cms deep - sort of sitting on top of that are the two front and back panels which slope in slightly which open to show a soft turtle skin gusset.  The bag has a solid turtle skin handle which is attached by leather loops hidden under the leather lining.

The bag measures 8.5"/21.5cms wide, 6"/15cms high and is 4"/10cms across the width.  The handle measures 8.5"/21.5cms long.

The bag has a turtle skin tab to close - and the press stud goes into a turtle skin covered piece on the front flap of the bag.  The interior is blue leather and there are two pockets on either side - one open and one zipped.  The Castiglione label is attached to the zipped pocket.

I can imagine this with lots of fun outfits both day and evening.
