Purse displays minor evidence of use and age. The exterior is in beautiful shape with the only real notable wear being on the interior. I cleaned up the zippers, which were fairly rusty, as best I could and all three are in fine working order. I also reinforced the handle where it snaps to adjust length. Purse is otherwise sturdy and well made for decades of use!
