This is a rare Art Deco crocodile skin clutch purse, dating to the 1920s.

There are multiple compartments for gloves, hankerchiefs and hairpins, and it also has a wonderful compartment which is complete with a crocodile skin backed mirror.
This is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.  

The clutch can now be used to hold more modern items such as notes, credit cards, lipsticks, safety pins and hair clips etc.  It is a very functional and very stylish item!

The compartments are all labeled for their original intended items in beautiful gold fancy script.

The hairpins compartment has a wonderful press stud fastening.
The mirror slides upwards out of its holder, and the clutch closes beautifully with a push in clasp.

The clutch has a lovely golden satin lining, all completely original.

The crocodile skin has aged beautifully and is soft and supple.
It has recently had a professional protective treatment which feeds the skin and prevents it from drying out.


The majority of the skin is still lovely and glossy.  There is a little wear and dryness along the folds and edges, as is usually the case with leather clutches of this period.

The satin lining is in excellent condition with no splits or fraying.


Length:   25cm
Height: 12.5cm
