An amazing find! Gorgeous superb quality late 1960's Louise Fontaine chocolate brown crocodile shoulder bag! Louise Fontaine exotic skin bags are highly coveted due to their exquisite craftsmanship, premium skins, and that they are no longer made anymore - quality is equivalent to Hermes. Louise Fontaine was a famous "maroquinier sellier"' (leather goods saddler) for the belgian beau-monde (wealthy) of the 50's-60's and had a high-end store on Avenue Louise in Brussels. Stunning quality skins and construction on this piece of art with impeccably matched, perfectly symmetrical center cut underbelly skins done in a glossy finish! Structured top handle with heavy gold brass twist front clasp and lobster claw handle hardware and thick padded skin shoulder strap. Interior is a spotless brown kid skin genuine leather with 3 separate compartments, including a zippered middle section, and features 1 open and 1 zippered side pockets - signed "Louise Fontaine, Bruxelles." This comes with the original Louise Fontaine dustbag. An absolutely exquisite bag!
