  1. Hello there, my father passed away and he left me this bag. There is nothing in the bag to identify it other than a tag saying it is from The French Company. I posted this in the LV thread because I've seen some French Company because be related to LV.

    Google has not been much help. I have no use for this bag and would like to sell it, if it is worth anything. Thank you in advance for whatever help you can provide!

  2. There is an Etsy seller that is selling them for around 150-175 USD. I don't know about its relation to LV if any, and I have not heard anyone mention this brand before.
     
  3. Do you have the link to that Etsy seller? And if not, do you know what make or model it is? I'd like to try listing it on eBay.

  5. The French Company was a US luggage and bag maker. In the mid-70's until the early 90's, they produced bags under license for Louis Vuitton. They also produced non-LV bags. Many of their non-LV bags look a lot like LV bags, but without the monogram canvas. This one looks a lot like a Keepall.
     
  6. Do you have any idea what this bag might be worth or where I could sell it? Here is another picture if it helps.

  8. Also, I noticed the LV bags typically have an embroidered designed and this one does not.
     
  9. That one is different from mine. That bag is more cylindrical. Mine also doesn't have a strap. Here's another picture

  10. And another in a different material. The seller is VintageLeatherPurses. ImageUploadedByPurseForum1468031619.119708.jpg
     
  11. Hmm. Alright. Thank you very much for your help. I just don't want to try and sell this and get ripped off. That's why I'm trying to find out a good price/what it's going for.
     
  12. I would recommend selling on Etsy or Tradesy if you aren't in a hurry to sell. If you go with eBay, there is a good chance the right buyer won't come along and you will get less that it is worth. French Company isn't well known and even the French Company LV's are typically worth less than ones made by LV. Try looking around on various resell sites to see what other similar bags are going for.
     
  13. I've been scouring the internet all night and can't seem to find this exact bag, so I really have no clue what to price it at. Any recommendations?
     
  14. According to completed items on eBay, I guess it's worth between $60 and $120.
     
  15. I just can't seem to find any picture of a bag identical to the one I have, so I don't want to under or over price it.
