Hi guys! Interesting story, I was looking for something in the attic when a certain dust bag caught my eye and to my surprise(and horror!) I found this obviously once beautiful piece just laying in a pile of junk. The leather is somewhat stiff at certain parts, the once gold hardware is now silver with slight hints of gold at the edges. The handle is twisted at a somewhat outward angle and there are slight cracks in the leather. However, the stitching is still so immaculate and the ostrich skin, even after all these years is still so beautiful to look at and just as an overall, the entire bag looks like a weapon which could have been used to silence an entire room filled with jealousy. I brought it down and my grandmother chastised me for being up in the attic and dirtying the house with old junk(haha). I knew it was hers because my grandmother had such an elegant style with the most beautiful and exquisite handbag collection for as long as I can remember and not many asian ladies carried such bags back then. I asked her about this bag and she said that it was a gift my grandfather had got for her in London sometime in the 90s before I was even born. I asked her if could have it, and she said go ahead but she also said how its far too old and dirty for someone so young like me to be carrying. She told me to get a longchamp or something like that(double haha). Long story short, can everyone look at the attached pictures and see what is the specific model/make and if it’s worth anything?
