1940s Reptile Bag

Reptile Bag

Large compartment holds the original comb, mirror, change purse, and even a packet of unused Sen-Sen breath mints! The lining is pink silk taffeta. There is no label, but the mirror has a knight (chess) and the letters we can make out look like ASR. Interesting shape for the frame as well. This fabulous purse belonged to the estate of Jane Nyssen (the granddaughter of the Post family in Rochester, NY of newspaper fame and Hollywood socialite.)
