This is a fine example of the classic 'A' line black crocodile skin handbag - made from the very best skin, the bag has a crocodile covered frame and a lovely croc side panel.  The interior has crocodile insets to the pockets which is an example of good craftsmenship.  The bottom of the bag is crocodile skin too and the whole is in beautiful condition.

The bag measures 28.5 cms/11.25" across and is 26.5 cms/10.5" high - so the look is deceiving!  The bag has a short arm handle which measures 33 cms/13" long.  It is attached with a classic ring fitting but has an interesting construction to the crocodile part of the handle.  The simple snap closure opens to reveal a black leather lined interior.  There is a triple pocket arrangement on the back wall of the bag - with an open pocket, a zipped pocket and a smaller open pocket on top.  On the opposite side there's another large open pocket.

If you like the classic look then this has it!
