I hope you can see the tooling on this bag. The one side has cutouts with white or ivory leather showing that's behind the charcoal brown. The back is all tooled. This bag has so many pockets!

3 Zippered compartments, plus the closure is a Zipper too. All Talon metal zippers. These date to 1950's. I'm pretty sure I read zippers became useful on clothing in 1901. Talon was one of the largest company's.

On the exterior, there are 4 large slip pockets (two on each side. The interior has one slip pocket and one zip compartment, plus an open compartment on either side of the zippered compartment.. Are you still with me? lol I think that 10 compartments altogether!!

It really is a nice purse but too many compartments for me...I get lost with it so out the door it's going!!!

Enjoy and hope you didn't have a hard time following along ;)

    I LOVE THIS!! I have a pierced 2-color tooled leather handbag but not nearly as fantastic as yours. Definitely Rockabilly chick chic.
