1950's Classic VINTAGE ETIENNE AIGNER Handbag

Chic and practical HAND MADE - Here is a fabulous example of an classic 1950's purse with an air of earthy bohemian look. A truly quality hand made purse from 1950's early 60's by Etienne Aigner. I love the combination of the rich honey brown leather and oatmeal tweed along with the extraordinary brass clasp. It is lined in a rich ochre color leather. There are 4 brass ball feet which it sits upon. It is all of top notch quality made and high end design. While there are so many handbags on the market today, I prefer this unique vintage purse with it's traditional, elegant look that will never go out of style. Plenty of room for a wallet, cell, Ah! and don't forget the lipstick.

A little bit on this designer.
Etienne Aigner was born in 1904 and grew up in Budapest. He began working with leather when he was a bookbinder. In 1930, Etienne moved to Paris and remained there until 1943 when he fled to avoid the German occupation. After the war, he returned to Paris and started his business of making fine belts and purses and sold them to retailers such as Dior, Lanvin and Rochas. In 1950, Etienne moved to New York and presented his leather collection under his own name brand "Etienne Aigner" The monogram of the letter "A" is in the form of a horseshoe which is also a symbol of good luck. Etienne Aigner became known as "The Man with the Golden Hands".
