Yes, a huge thank you to TPF'er nizlay. to you nizlay, you're a gem. Not once, but twice, you alerted me to this bag on eBay and I finally got it. History - some of you may remember I bought this Zipper-bag (that's the name I gave to this model) in Ebano in April this year. Love it, and most of all, DH loves it too. Unfortunately, there were some leather and dye problems which I could not accept but have to return it. That was the only piece in Singapore. I then got he Roma instead. I've always wanted something in Ottone. So, again, thanks to nizlay, such a caring TPF'er and remembering my laments, alerted me to a brand new Ottone Zipper-bag ! I'm posting pics of the previous bag in Ebano to give those who have not read my earlier thread an idea of the bag. Also, as I just received the bag this evening, and being in Ottone which is best captured in natural light, I do not have a pic of the bag yet, but am posting the one from eBay. I hope eBay seller, leshent, does not mind me using HIS photo of (now) MY bag . (Mods, pls remove if this is inappropriate). This is my first eBay transaction and I was full of apprehension initially. Thanks to nizlay, and to all who put in assuring words on leshent, my first eBay experience has been wonderful. I believe the Ottone Zipper-bag hardly made it to our shores. Having not seen Ottone IRL, I was afraid it would be a little loud for day use. And as most Ottone owners assured me, it's perfect for day. So unique and I just love the different gold tones on the weaving. I couldn't stop stroking and making out all the gold specks and tones on the weave. Thank you to all my dear fellow TFP'ers whose opinions and advices were invaluable in helping me in making up my mind on this purchase on eBay. Know what, I paid almost 55% cheaper than what I had paid for the Ebano from the BV boutique! Huge savings! Thanks for letting me share.
