    Good morning/afternoon/night to all!

    Feels good to finally be able to post here again! It's been a crazy few months lately...
    My grandmother (that just turned 88) gifted me this lovely handbag, but didn't give much info on it, I'm not certain if it's made from leather, and my guess is that it dates to the 1950s. Am I correct?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi there,

    It’s crocodile and I’d love to take guess of the age but I don’t really know so I’ll leave it to the handbag gurus to help with the dating.

    I think 60s, maybe 70s.
