This is a beautiful 1960's Morris Moskowitz MM black leather handbag with embossed snakeskin pattern. It has an asymmetrical flap that snaps closed. The chain strap is gold chain detail that leads to a leather formed piece that goes over the shoulder and also carries the snakeskin embossing. It has card compartments inside.
Morris Moskowitz was a very popular handbag company that started in the 1940's and gave start to many rising star designers including Judith Leiber. These bags were sold in high end department stores including Bergdorf Goodman and Lord and Taylor, and they were known for their snakeskin bags!
This handbag is in good condition, with just a slight amount of wear on the inside flap where the chain comes out and some very minor wear on the chain.
