OMIGOD! I have been searching for this purse for a year and a half! The last one I say on eBay sold for a lot less. I'm a vintage purse dealer, and I've only seen 3 of these. Very big co. in the Netherlands back in the day! Wahoo! However, something is up because the other two were manuf'd soley by Staeter. I know these are dated to the 1930s, so perhaps later in the decade Bagcraft bought the right to manufacture them? The other ones I've seen still had the little paper brochure that described the Schiaperelli connection. I could talk about this all day . . .

Actually, after looking at this again, this is a slightly different style than the other 2 I've seen. This is smaller and more of a Gladstone-style (which makes sense since it's made by Bagcraft). I would say that this is the next generation (kissing cousins?) of the original, larger case-like bags designed and orginally marketed by Staeter.

Kiari -- As I've only seen 3 (and they were all on eBay), I can't give a value off the top of my head. If I'm remembering the last two listings correctly, one sold for +/- $150 and the next for +/- $300 -- each time it appears, the bids go higher, so there must be a number of people trying to get their hands on one of these. I am sure that I have the book that pictures this purse at home, and I'll check it tonight. I'm at work right now :sad:
