Charles Jourdan Paris snakeskin purse
This vintage snakeskin purse was made in France and is by Charles Jourdan Paris.
The snakeskin is in a pearlized dark seafoam.
The sides are in leather with gold-tone edging and they extend 1" above the top.
The upper side interiors are in gold lame, and each leather side also has two gold-tone rivet openings.
Each side also has two smaller open rivets that are 2 1/8" below the upper ones.
The top has eight gold-tone rivets on each side with two metallic cords in silver, gold, and black-speckled gold.
When the purse is open, the drawstrings hang downward 5 1/2".
The interior is in a light camel-tan leather.
The leather side strip on the right side has a few dark and light tiny spots and the other leather side has a gold line mark below the upper rivet, a light gold dot about 1" below the lower rivet, and a line mark.
We don't think they detract from its appearance.
It can be worn either in the daytime or the evening.
It's from a former French actress.
8 7/8" high (in center) by 8 1/2" at its widest
9 7/8" high (on sides)
