Slipping the hand through its short strap, this smart handbag was held against or across the body and was the perfect accessory for the silk satin bias-cut evening dresses of the period, which encircled and accentuated the female form. Dyed shagreen, the outer skin of a ray or shark, in this particular shade of green was considered the height of chic during the 1930s.
