This is a Bosca Leather Company Hand Stained Black Leather Portfolio. Bosca Leather Company was established in 1911 in the USA, has been operated by the same family since then, and is considered a very reputable producer of fine leather goods.

This portfolio has a very simple design that suited its definition when made which was "a portable case for holding material, such as loose papers, photographs, or drawings". This Bosca portfolio holds an abundance of material with a fine hand stained leather case and secures that material with a brass industrial zipper. Today this vintage Bosca portfolio serves a modern purpose by functioning perfectly as a laptop or IPad sleeve.

Dimensions:

Length: 16 inches

Width: 1 inch expandable to 3 inches

Height: 12 inches


What is Hand Stained Leather?

This is what Bosca has to say:

LEATHER - HANDSTAINED
Our leathers are natural with little or no finish which would hide the true character of the leather. Our most famous leather is called Old Leather. This leather is hand-stained by artisans in Italy. Our "Old Washed" is also a hand-stained, Italian, vegetable-tanned leather which undergoes a special washing process to give it a further, softened and vintage look and feel.

Condition:

This portfolio is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes. It has very little evidence of use by way of scuffs or scratches. The only evidence of use is the gold monogram which may be removable or, if not removable, capable of being covered over to make this product your own.

The Monogram:

I keep monograms because I think they add a unique history and identity to a bag. ( Sometimes the monogram establishes it was owned by some famous professional and you can discover its history. See Dr. H V Murdaugh, Jr MD bag we have listed at https://www.etsy.com/listing/233395865/clearance-sale-vintage-dopp-bilt-brown?ref=shop_home_active_9 )

If you don't like monograms they are easily and inexpensively covered up or replaced by brass, leather or cloth plates with your own monogram. Link to this site and see how this is easily and inexpensively used to replace a monogram. http://diyplanner.com/node/7166 .

About The Bosca Leather Company:

According to their website, "the Bosca story is the Italian-American immigrant story. Hugo Bosca traveled from Italy to The United States at the turn of the 20th century to pursue the American dream. Using his Italian artisan skills in 1911 he founded and built a company. Today we still combine the Italian and American experience and cultures. Each day we work hard to re-invent Bosca and we always respect our past. “Rispettiamo il passato per costruire il future.” For more about their history link to: http://bosca.com/our-company/heritage/
