South American Caiman Crocodile (Caiman crocodilus)

Vintage Purses

(Rare) Tiny to small in size, vintage (circa 1950's), they used to be very popular as a collector item (stuffed, or as purses), now they are protected.

"Caiman"  is a Spanish term meaning "crocodile" or  any Crocodilian.

Despite pressure from hunting and also collection for the pet trade, however, existing surveys suggest that populations are in relatively good condition in most areas (e.g Venezuela). This seems to reflect the adaptability of the species, its reproductive potential, and the increase in available habitat through the removal of competing species and an increase in man-made water bodies (e.g Brazilian Panatal, Colombia, Venezuela).  Today, only the Spectacled Caiman is hunted in large numbers in the Panatal area of Brazil, the others remain protected.

The pelt can be removed from the purse for other uses.

KANGAROO PRODUCTS

NOTE:  The kangaroo is subject to Australian Government protection, but needs to be constantly culled owing to its prolific breeding habits, so they don't starve to death from overpopulation.   The hides are tanned and sold, the meat is eaten, and every possible part of the roo is made into something to be sold in a secondary market such as this.  Kangaroos are NOT caught for these pouches!  This is a byproduct made into something useful, just as byproducts of pig, cow and sheep farms.

The legend of the roo pouch:  

Once upon a time there lived in the center of Australia an aboriginal boy.  One day he came upon a small kangaroo in the bush, caught it by the tail, and made a purse out of its dear little symbol of masculinity.  He gave it to his girl, and she kept seeds and berries in it.  Next he saw a large kangaroo.  He caught it with a spear and made another purse from its thick symbol of masculinity.  He gave it to his father who kept stones and things of value in it.

Ever since then, male kangaroo scrotum purses have been popular amongst the aborigines.  For women, the soft pliable one; for men, the strong, wrinkled one.  They became as important as one's own symbol of masculinity and were recognized as bringing luck.  That's why kangaroo scrotum purses are called "Lucky Bags" or "Lucky Pouches".

A great Aussie story for you - when the Europeans got to Australia, they saw a big jumping animal.  Amazed at what they had seen, they asked the Aborigines what they called the creatures.  One Aborigine man replied "kangaroo", which means when translated "I don't understand your question".  Okay, you can smile now, but next time you don't understand someone, you can say "kangaroo" too and share the fun. 
The Aborigines in Australia use the kangaroo as a lesson in life - it cannot physically move backwards.  Enjoy this kangaroo skin as your own lesson in life to always look forward to the future, not backwards at what cannot be undone.

 

Kangaroo Paw BACK SCRATCHER

#EL-900-100  Genuine kangaroo paw back scratcher!  13" long, partially wrapped and sewn roo hide from paw down the bamboo stick about 6".  Keep in mind the kangaroos are hunted by government permit only, if they did not keep the numbers down they would starve in the winter, which is worse.  Then 100% of the roo is recycled (the meat is eaten, the hide is used, even the feet as you see here, much as deer here in the U.S.)  Information card comes with it.

TOAD LEATHER ACCESSORIES
REAL CANE TOAD PRODUCTS from AUSTRALIA

(Bufo marinus)

 Imported from Hawaii to eat a cane beetle, Aussie's found out it doesn't eat the beetle!  Gators eat them and die - pet dogs eat them and die - they're toxic toads!  So they're caught and processed into coin purses such as this.  The toxin is being studied for cardiovascular and cancer research, which the Chinese have been using for centuries.  Some have even smoked the skin as a hallucinogenic!  Of course, the tanning process eliminates any poison - and the tanned leather is surprisingly thick and durable!  For the person who has everything, bet he doesn't have this!  Great as a gift or for use in your own craft projects using an exotic & affordable leather.  This product does not require a CITES certificate.

The closest specific genus we can find to match this pattern is called a "garden boa" with a drawing of this wide sideways diamond pattern on the internet.   This is NOT a shed skin, it is a fully skinned boa constrictor leather tanned hide.

Beautifully tanned, it is thick, sturdy, supple, chestnut coloring, with a black side-to-side diamond pattern.   Extremely impressive to hang on a wall.

Zebra skin.  A gentleman who owned a zoo in North Carolina had two zebras, this one, named Stripes, got his leg caught in the fence and died of shock overnight before he was found.  They salvaged the skin, he knew it would have a good home with us!  The full tail is there (picture #4), everything on the head right down to the eyelashes (picture #3).  Picture #2 is a close up of the head itself.  We will be mounting it on plywood soon to hang on the wall.   Rare to find this complete of a zebra skin.

GOLD COAST MONKEY COAT

(Abyssinian or Central African Colobus Monkey)

mvc-268s.jpg (38124 bytes)

This is our good friend-Rona-from-New-Jersey-who-started-out-as -a-customer, modeling my vintage 1920's "Gold Coast Monkey" coat.  YES, it's genuine monkey ! I bought it in California (I'm NOT a fur person, but this was too intriguing to pass up) and since it's vintage and now endangered, it's a pretty special piece.  Thank goodness it's not being made anymore.  The hair is like real human hair - it's really spooky.  It was assessed at $20,000 by a Consignment fur store in Beverly Hills, CA.  And though that is the ideal venue to sell the coat at the highest possible price, they do not handle endangered species.

This species of monkey has silky human-like hair that grows to 5" long or more.  Monkey fur was very popular from the mid-19th century through the 1940's, when this coat was created.

We are not in the market to buy another.  So if you have a similar coat or stole that has been passed down to you, you may evaluate its worth by checking on Ebay where we have found monkey fur coats sold on a regular basis, though generally not this quality and hence, not at this price.

Valued at $9500* subject to market change of course, but not for sale

 

Update, friend Linda tries the coat on for fun.
