This Varon handbag came from my mother in laws estate. The daughters are all in agreement that it would be from the late 1960s.
The design is diagonal snakeskin patchwork in colors of maroon, silver, and black. It has gold colored brass hardware. The inside is black in color and has the main zippered compartment with one small zippered side pocket and one open side pocket. It measures 12.5 inches side to side by 8 inches tall.
There are no tears, stains, or flaking of the snake skin. There is one spot in the lower right corner that is a tad bit worn. You can see this in my photo but keep in mind that the photo is enlarged. In normal view, that area is hard to see and is at the bottom and once items are put inside the weight should cause that area to be hidden.
EXPLANATION OF SHIPPING CHARGES:
Google will not include items in their search pages unless a shipping charge is stated or unless calculated shipping is offered. Calculated shipping is very often quoted incorrectly so I choose to post a charge using the east coast as the destination. If you live in or near California, your charges may be less and if so I will refund a portion of those charges. If you are uncomfortable with doing it that way, feel free to contact me with your zipcode for an accurate delivery charge.
That being said, buyer to pay no more than $9.95 for USPS Priority Mail delivery charges, again, possibly less depending on your location.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
