Black Turtle Skin Box Bag

This black turtle skin box bag is small and beautifully formed!  The fine condition is eloquently displayed with softly rounded shoulders and rounded panels to the side with a finely shaped handle.  Not a word I would normally use but this bag is pretty!  It really is the dictionary definition of small, neat and dainty.

Sometimes I know why I'm in this business - it's when you find something exquisite that is a pleasure to look at and to handle - and this is one of those occasions.  This bag is beautifully made the whole thing is in lovely black turtle skin and the only metal visible is a gilt push button clasp on the top of the bag - which you depress to open and snap to close.

The frame side panels and base are all skin and when open there is one side of the frame in gilt and there are 4 gilt feet to the base.  The bag measures 21 cms/8.25" across and is 15.5 cms/6" high.  The width is 9.5 cms/4" across and the handle measures 36 cms/14.25" from side to side of the bag.

The interior is in black leather and has one open pocket to the front and a 4 part pocket to the back - with 3 open pockets and one zipped with the original mirror.  On the front of the pocket is a label from 'Boutique Dominic' Anvers - which is Antwerp - and it looks like it may still exist.

The whole construction is great and this is a fabulous bag
