Large Shoulder Bag Box Style
Height 7 1/2"
Width 4 1/2"

In Great condition. Lady at the estate sale said that her mother never carried it as she was "Saving" it.
Size: 9" x 5"
1 Snap inside pocket
1 Credit Card Holder
1 Picture Holder ( Bottom of snap is off but is enclosed. It may can be added back on)
It has some slight mold and mold smell but may can be cleaned.
Both items are finished in leather whip lacing. These are very sturdy items, not flexable.
During the 1950's these items were very popular before the restrictions that Florida, etc. put on catching, killing and making things out of Alligator and Crocodile skins.
I purchased these from an estate sale. It will need to be cleaned up some but I will leave that to the collector.
A rare find in such condition for an item that is over 69 years old.
