This luxurious vintage Framed Satchel ensemble is by Longhorn Leatherworks. Not to be mistaken for the Texas Longhorns College sports team’s accessories and souvenirs, the Longhorn Leatherworks Company made exquisite, extremely well designed, upscale handbags of genuine cowhide of the highest quality. This ultra-rare model is one of the finest to be found. Very few exist and it is doubtful to find one today in the splendid condition like this treasure. The beautiful satchel is one of five from a private estate and it was never carried. It is absolutely pristine inside and out.
There are many pictures for you to see of this ensemble that will really give you a closer look at not only this gem, but the other four outstanding handbags in this collection in a dedicated page from this private estate. They can be seen at my Facebook page: NengHetty’s Fine Accessories. Please visit and LIKE the page as there are many other handbags there along with tips on how to care for handbags, too.
Before you even touch this gorgeous Longhorn, the smell of rich, Cowhide leather greets you. Then, the size of this majestic handbag. Then, when you do feel the rich, extra-thick, butter soft leather, you will smile as this is a very large, massive handbag and it will leave no doubt of its presence, and of its quality.
Made of Light Brown Cowhide and trimmed with Light Brown Suede in a style that is functional yet beautiful, this is a full featured Satchel.
Pull the opening at the top and it springs open wide and stays open for you to see the shimmering satin fabric and leather interior. The frame is made by the world famous Fassbender Frame Company in England. Fassbender made frames for some of the most prestigious designers and the quality is unmatched.
Inside, you will see a zippered security pocket with a slip pocket just below. It is so spacious, you can carry all of your essentials and a full-sized tablet computer with ease. It will make a dramatic statement and bring many compliments. It is flawless inside and that smell of rich leather is there.
Also inside, is the matching, full function, tri-fold clutch/wallet. This beautiful wallet was never used as well and even the information card from new and long before the Internet existed, is present. The wallet has ten pockets including a currency pocket on the side. It also has a kiss snap coin purse that is lined in Beige canvas material. The gleaming solid brass Fassbender frame of the wallet works smoothly and closes firmly as it should. Trimmed in suede as the satchel, it will make a stunning impression when you carry it.
Gently nudge the opening and the satchel closes with that “Thoomph” sound of quality. To best use this feature is when you are shoulder carrying this satchel, gently pull it open, access what you need, and use your elbow to nudge it closed, keeping your hands free to transact. A very well thought out design.
On the outside on the front, there are two slip pockets that can hold your smart phone or travel documents safely and out of view but readily available when you need them. All of the seams and stitching is superb and the strap attaches with two gleaming over-sized brass rings.
The strap is thick, supple and extra wide for comfort and is fully adjustable without ends dangling and spoiling the design. All of the leathers are clean and supple with no stains or marks as this Longhorn was stored perfectly and simply handled, not worn. This gorgeous Longhorn rests on six, solid brass feet.
This Longhorn is a handbag that will make you smile when you see and feel it and is perfect for the executive, doctor, lawyer, traveler, or for a day out. It is that nice in every way. You will love this one.
The dimensions are MASSIVE! It is 14 ¼ “L x 10”H x 4”D and the adjustable strap affords up to a 17” drop from your shoulder.
The wallet is 5”L x 4” closed and 10 ½ “L x 4” fully open.
