Absolutely fabulous 1950's-60's Louise Fontaine jet black crocodile porosus skin handbag! SO rare to find these gorgeous bags by this designer, especially in this condition. 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 crocodile porosus underbelly skins done in a glossy finish! Unblemished top handle (appears to be a perfectly matched replacement) with inlaid skin and gold plated front pull and twist top clasp. Clean black kid skin genuine leather interior with 2 separate compartments features 1 open, 1 snapped, and 1 zippered side pockets - signed "Louise Fontaine, Bruxelles." An absolutely exquisite bag!
