Vintage 1970's eel skin leather purse in black from the 1970's.
Hardware on this exotic eel skin leather bag is gold tone.
Vintage purse is divided into two sections. One side is a zippered compartment and the other side uses a magnetic snap closure mechanism.
Black vintage bag created entirely of exotic eel skin leather. Ultra luxurious and super silky to the touch. Eel skin is super soft and extremely durable. Think of kid leather but with a much smoother texture. If you have never felt eel skin before then you are in for a wonderful surprise when you get your hands on this bag.
This is a large bag measuring 12 1/2" wide, 8 1/2" tall, handle drop of 13". This is the largest vintage eel skin purse that I have seen. It requires many eel skins to create a purse due to the fact that eels are very thin. A lot of man hours go into matching and aligning those skins. Eel skin is considered to be an exotic leather and is costly to produce and to purchase.
The skins are in excellent condition. The only areas of wear are on 2 bottom corners and above the magnetic snap closure. Areas have been photographed for you.
Interior is lined in black fabric with a tiny diamond pattern that is flawless.
