Who can resist a bag with feet?! This petite cutie has the most adorable details from top to bottom. Elephant faces and feet, a sweetly curled handle...even the button close is darling! Croc textured patent leather brings a vibrant shine to this fabulous and highly unusual work of art. A piece of fashion history, made by the elusive Lee Wolfe. This design duo, made up of Motti Lerer and Lee Kagan, created Modernist jewelry and artistic handbags in the 1980's-90's. Their matte finish jewelry pieces are more common on the vintage market than the bags, which were made in limited editions with no two exactly alike.
Vintage mixed metal and leather. Tagged Lee Wolfe on the bag body and zipper tag. Bag body measures 7" x 5" by 2" deep at base. Exterior finishes in excellent condition. Some minor age to interior. The long strap has been lost to time. A new one could be made but the top handle is the best way to carry this attention grabber.
Shown with a wild jewelry styling set including our Claw Clip earrings and Lee Wolfe Swirly Cactus Brooch.
How can you tell the difference between elephant species? Here's the breakdown: African Elephants (Loxodonta africana & Oxodonta cyclotis) have larger ears that sit higher on their head, and both males & females grow tusks. Asian ellies (Elephas maximus) have smaller low-set ears and only males have tusks. ALL elephants are highly endangered due the ivory trade, but governments around the world are working together in hope of saving this majestic animal.
