This is a difficult bag to date - it could be 60s or 70s.  I bought the bag with a storage bag inside but I cannot quarantee that they match but the bag fits perfectly.  The storage bag is from Nouvelta - a leading handbag manufacturer from Belgium.  They have been going for more than 50 years. 

The rectangular bag utilizes the skin very well.  There are two external side pockets which have press stud closure.  One of these works very well - but the other is very stiff.  The main section of the bag is opened by pressing down the gilt fitting in the middle of the top section.  The 2 handles are attached through very smart gilt shoulders on either side of the frame.  The bag is made of croc skin throughout, including the top cover of the frame, the base and the two handles.

The bag measures 30 cms/12" across, is 19 cms/7.5" high and is 7 cms/3" across the width.  When the bag is opened the two side panels are beautifully constructed and show the elegance of the whole thing.  Inside is red leather with a double zipped and open pocket on one side and a larger open pocket on the other.

The bag is completed by 4 fine gilt feet to the bottom.  Its a lovely bag in a bit of a class of its own!!
