A straw and blue leather shoulder bag from Etienne Aigner featuring a fully lined open pocket on the front accented with the iconic gold tone horseshoe "A" logo, straw body throughout, and gold tone hardware on the straps. A metal zipper opens to reveal an open compartment also fully lined in Etienne Aigner logo cloth, and an open pocket on the side. The bag measures 12 1/2" long, 4" wide and 9 3/4" tall with a strap drop of 13". The bag is in very good original condition with just a slight odor due to age that may not even be worth mentioning due to how mild it is.
From Wikipedia: Etienne Aigner was born in Hungary in 1904. First a bookbinder, he started creating high-end leather goods such as handbags and belts for boutiques in Paris. In 1950, after apprenticing with Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga, he came to New York to expand his business. The brand's signature color is called "Antic Red" and the Aigner logo is the letter "A" shaped into a horseshoe. "AIGNER gave its products a rural, countrystyle feel. There was always a sense of the racecourse, a feeling of being by the fireside. A phenomenon that can still be felt today" (quote source: www.aignermunich.com). Mr. Aigner died in New York City in 2000 at the age of 96.
