Description

This is a seasoned Hartmann Belting Leather Flapover Style Briefcase or Attache. This flap over style is quite rare for a Hartmann briefcase. You don't see many listed in the vintage marketplace. [ There is a Hartmann listed with this style is a new with tags style flap over briefcase listed at Tim's Luggage for $2,495.00. If you would like to see that briefcase link to :http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hartmann-Belting-Leather-Flapover-Messenger-Bag-Briefcase-Attache-MADE-IN-USA/222070041369?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D45560%26meid%3Dc337acfc867043799218e12d24abdb55%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D9%26sd%3D221276890814&_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850 ]

This is the same style case as the Hartmann flap over at Tim's Luggage. While the case we offer is more distressed than the new with tags case at Tim's Luggage, our price tag is substantially less distressing than the price tag at Tim's Luggage.

This is a beautiful case with a "figure 8" leather handle and beautiful brass fittings. It has a brass combination lock. It has a double gusset with interior nylon lining and leather storage pouches. The flap over closure straps are held in place with magnetic snaps. It has an adjustable removable leather shoulder strap with comfort bad and brass snap clips.

This case was manufactured in the U.S.A out of real Belting Leather and is old stock. This quality of leather is no longer used by Hartmann. The current Belting Leather being offered by Hartmann is not as high quality as this item. Prior to 1997 Hartmann used its highest quality real Belting Leather, sourced from the best tannery in the world. This is the true tan colored Belting Leather that is the most coveted, and becoming nearly impossible to find in good condition. I refer to this as "Original" Belting Leather.

Length: 17 inches
Height: 13 inches
Width: 5 inches

Condition:

This bag is in good used condition. The bag has structural integrity as there are no holes or tears in the leather that permeate the surface. However, there are spots on the corners of the bag where the leather has worn to the point where the leather has peeled. [ See collage photo 5 and close up of base of bag photo 8] This is caused by setting the bag on concrete surfaces. This is typical wear caused by placing the bag on rough surfaces and does not compromise the structural integrity of the bag. This has not compromised the structural integrity of the bag and is easily repaired with leather glue. There are also many scuffs and scratches typical of a bag over 30 years old. Several of the scuffs are white marks. This may not have the original strap as I do not see the Hartmann logo on it and the strap with this bag appears to be of a higher quality than the Hartmann strap that came with the original Hartmann bags of this style. Please see photos for best depiction of the condition of this bag.

At the time of this listing we have another Hartmann Flap Over Style Briefcase with considerable distress for a lower price. You can see that bag at this link:

IT'S THE REAL THING PLEDGE. If we sell it, it's the real thing. We guarantee it's the real thing or you get your money back including your delivery costs we this pledge:

GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC OR ALL MONEY BACK. We understand there are counterfeits and knockoffs of vintage products by well known manufacturers for sale all over the internet and in other market places. We use multiple procedures to assure the products we sell are authentic. One procedure we use is to research authenticity through vintage manufacturer catalogs and to report our research in the listing. Sometimes we include a snippet from the catalog to corroborate our research and educate you about the history of the bag. The purpose of reporting what the manufacturer says about its product in the catalog is to verify our research on the authenticity and to educate you about how a vintage product was portrayed in the past. It is not intended to hold our shop out as a representative of the manufacturer. However, if it turns out we are wrong or our research is not correct we guarantee that if we sell you a product represented to be manufactured by a reputable company like Coach, Cole Haan, Ghurka, Filson, Christian Dior, Hartmann, Gucci, or any other company and you have competent evidence that the product is not authentic we will refund your purchase price and delivery cost. In addition, we will pay for return postage.

Shipping policies

•Shipping costs are based on USPS Flat Rates for Domestic or International. We pass on the discounted rate Etsy gives us to our buyers. If you would like different shipping we will agree to provide the shipping you specify at the rate we are charged. If you purchase more than one item we are more than happy to combine shipping and pass on the savings to you.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING. We use the USPS International Shipping service for international shipping. On international shipments the buyer is responsible for any tariff or customs charge. A tariff or customs charge is not a shipping charge but a tax imposed on the buyer by his or her country and the buyer is responsible for determining what that charge may be and for paying the tariff charge.
