I shipped the Vintage Ligne Chocolate Bowler (trapezoid shape) and it will be arriving at Saks tomorrow (Saturday Jan 5th). The Vintage Ligne Bowler was originally $2295 - I think it is currently on sale for $964. The handles are braided like Lady Braid and the color is very pretty. I'm returning it because hand helds are just not practical for me with our 2 year old. PM me if you want more details. BTW - I think Larkie posted pics of this bowler in the reference library if you want more piccies.
