Very hard to find vintage caiman alligator handbag from South America in near mint condition is a new listing that we're certain won't last a week on the site. The height of vintage fashion, this purse features the actual caiman alligator head right on the front of the handbag and he wraps over the top of the bag and winds up at his feet tucked in underneath on the back of the purse. What an effect! The quality of the workmanship is very fine to be able to render such a design, and we don't have to tell you that the skin is of the highest quality and widely sought by collectors and those who just love vintage fashion styles. One design feature you should be sure not to miss are the two eyes which we believe to be glass but is not certain. Don't miss the front and rear feet either tucked up in the rear and alongside the head on the front. It has a label on the felt and leather lined interior which reads Genuine Caiman From South America, and the brass clasp on the front is nice and secure. The purse also has 4 brass ball feet to protect the caiman skin underneath. Caiman is a Spanish term for "alligator" or any crocodilian species, by the way, and it's an extremely adaptable species found in virtually all lowland wetland and river habitat of South America. This vintage allligator / crocodile caiman handbag measures 7.0" high not including the handle which rises another 6.0" when taut, 9.0" wide, and 3.0" deep at the deepest point, coming direct to you from an eclectic Columbus, Ohio estate collection; cross listed on Bigger Ticket 2. The height of vintage fashion and sure to be the talk of any party! /325      SOLD
