Stylish 1970’s/1980’s medium size black leather and real snakeskin frame handbag/ shoulder bag, made in England by Ackery of London.
The frame of the bag is partially leather covered, the fittings are gold tone, with slight tarnishing, particularly to the clasp. The snap closure is tight. The handbag is lined in suede, which is clean and unmarked. There are two slip pockets edged in black leather, together with one zipped pocket.
The general condition is very good, the bag appears to have had little use. The base is clean and unmarked, there is no rubbing to the corners. There is some rubbing and slight lifting of the snakeskin scales along the bottom edge and top right edge of the bag, as you would expect. Only minor creasing and surface marks to the leather.
Measures: width 29cm; height 19cm; depth 7cm. Handle drop is 16 cm to top of bag and can be adjusted to 36cm.
