The Most Incredible find in My Own Closet

So I was cleaning out my closet this past weekend and came across a wallet I haven't used for some time. This wallet was a gift from a well-to-do aunt of mine who lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Anyway, I always admired the wallet because of it's uniqueness and quality but I just discovered now that it is a Balenciaga! I couldn't believe it! The wallet was given to me five years ago before I was "designer-inclined" for lack of a better word. I wasn't at the time familiar with the name "Balenciaga." Has anyone seen this wallet before? I wonder what it is worth.

I am trying to attach two pics of the wallet. It is my first time posting images. Please let me know if you are able to view.

It looks like old school Balenciaga (before Nicholas Guesquire (sp))

Last summer there was a display of the tobacco heiress Doris Duke's clothes from the 30's to the 50's or 60's in her mansion i(which is now a museum) in Newport, Rhode Island. One of her favorite designers at the time was Balenciaga. I didn't get to see it but I really wanted to!

The wallet's very pretty

Thanks ladies. The funny thing is when I used to carry it around, I was pretty rough with it. Now that I know what a treasure it is, it will receive much more TLC. It is still in excellent condition, thank God!

Loganz, thanks for your help with the picture postings!
