Lederer de Paris, Inc.
The Lederer company opened their first boutique in the US around 1939 in New York City at 711 Fifth Ave. Prior to that, the company operated over twenty stores in Europe: including London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and Budapest. Their specialties were upscaled alligator and crocodile satchels, as well as various exotic skins all meticulously handcrafted and finished. A signature feature of their finest model was an attached gold plated pocket watch. Since the 1960s, this over-100-year-old corporation has been run by the three generations of Mr. Lederer’s followers. The brand has changed ownership several times, yet still remains in operation worldwide as a distinguished maker of very fine leather goods.
Such an unusual colour in this handbag, although I believe it to be a very versatile one. It should blend beautifully with navy, black, greens and browns. No notable flaws that I can see, other than a pen mark internally at the base of the handbag, and a couple of small marks to the exterior but hardly worth mentioning. No nicks or peeling skin. Conditioned and ready to use. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
