An adorable late '60s / early '70s gold Saffian leather evening purse with a rhinestone owl clasp by Morris Moskowitz who started his career in 1948 in New York City.
The metal body of the owl is encrusted with sparkling rhinestones and he has 2 red rhinestones for eyes.
The evening bag is gold & ivory satin lined with 3 open pockets on the backside for a mirror, license & some bills.

There is a store mark inside the purse as shown in the photo, 2 tiny rhinestones in the body of the owl are missing which could easily be replaced and a few scuff marks on the bottom & back which no one is ever going to notice.
Very good vintage condition in this gold leather owl evening bag by Morris Moskowitz.
We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
