Classic 1980's Sharif handbag in an assortment of wonderful leathers and skins, lizard, snake, ostrich and deer skin. The colors are a mix of deep purples, blues and soft blacks, and a touch of a dark turquoise green. Interior is black suede. Can use as a shoulder handbag with the long strap, or tuck the strap in to use as a clutch.
These fabulous bags were sold at Neiman Marcus in the 1980s. One of us visited the San Francisco store often for work representing Cartier and Tiffany perfumes. The Sharif counter was on the first floor of the store as was the Cosmetics & Perfume department. A treasured high-end designer handbag then and now.

CONDITION: Excellent. Close-to-mint. Exterior is minty. No signs of wear noted. The leather and skins are all in wonderful condition. All stitching is in great condition. No rips or tears. The interior shows few signs of wear, which is a small lipstick stain on the bottom interior that we may be able to remove with a suede brush.
