This is a lovely little box bag which is just the right size for holding all your essentials!
Made in the 1940s from very dark navy blue "mock snakeskin", the outer of the bag is plastic, possibly rexine, which has been embossed to look like scales on a snake. The frame is gold tone and it has a single handle. The bag is fully lined.

Height , including the handle
Looks good but there are points to note;
- someone has squished the frame at some point and although it isn't noticeable to the eye it does mean the bag is stiff to open and needs to be wiggled
- the metalwork has marks and wear, but I think it adds to the charm of the piece
