This is a vintage 1980’s snakeskin or eel purse with coordinating wallet made by W.A Thompson & co. Inc. of New York- Paris. The purse was purchased at Caesars’ Palace in Atlantic City and is made of genuine snakeskin with a pattern that is indicative of baby python. The inside of the purse is lined with textured suede and has one zippered pocket inside. The black label stitched inside says, “W.A Thompson & Co. Inc. of New York- Paris. Made in Philippines”. The doubled sided snakeskin strap has two brass snaps that attach on the inside of the purse to adjust length. The purse itself measures 5 ½ inches long, 7 in across the top and 2 ¼ in depth which tapers into a half moon shape. The snakeskin strap is 43 ½ inches long when measured separately and has a few tiny brown spots on the inside. The snaps on each end of the strap take up 1 ¾ inches of the total 43 ½ inches. This snakeskin purse has great details: such as its snakeskin covered snaps.  The purse has a single magnetic “Tobutton” button closure that snaps shut in the center. The coordinated wallet has a very similar pattern and is lined with a chocolate colored fabric and has a white tag on the inside that says “made in china”. The wallet is a tri fold type with a clear pocket for your ID. There are three slots to hold cards on each side and a long pocket to hold bills. The bottom left and right edges are slightly worn with a few rust colored marks. The stitching in the corners of the wallet is also slightly frayed. The coordinating wallet is almost a perfect match to the bag but the wallet is believed to be made out of synthetic fabric. The colors of this coordinated snakeskin purse and wallet range from black and brown to grey and ivory.
