Over all structurally sound but this little darling does display evidence of its age. There is wear to the skin at each edge of the purse top and a bit on the handles. Also of note is an area that appears a bolder shade on the front (as pictured) and I'm not certain if this is original to the skin or a later color correction.
The purse is clean inside and out and sturdy enough for actual use. Truly a unique accessory for any wardrobe.
