Armadillo Handbag

A handbag made out of an Armadillo, collected from Charles Darwin’s expedition to South America and the Galapagos by Bartholomew James Sulivan, Lieutenant of the Beagle, with a letter confirming its provenance.

“My father in the ‘Beagle’ days used to roast the armadillo in the ashes of a camp fire and the animal was cooked inside its shell.” Henry Norton Sullivan, son of Bartholomew James Sulivan
