This is one of the finest examples from the maker Louis Coblentz to be found. From New York City, Mr. Coblentz spent years in Paris studying French designers. As a result, some of the most highly prized handbags were produced for those who could afford high end models such as this beautiful Coblentz. Each handbag was handmade by the artisan and none are exactly the same. From a private collection, and for a handbag that is approaching sixty-five years old, it is in excellent condition.
This fine Coblentz is an ultra-rare, custom made, genuine Calfskin leather original in the deepest Brown. The moment you first touch and hold this magnificent Coblentz, you know that this is a quality that was exclusive as many handbag makers in the Thirties and Forties were using fabric, vinyl, as leather was reserved for the absolute best. Look at the styling of this handbag and it was quite obvious that Mr. Coblentz was very talented designer.
Today, this valise will make a stunning impression and is very functional as well as beautiful. Whether you wear it to the boardroom, formal event, or traveling, this Coblentz is truly luxurious in every way. With ease, it can carry a tablet and your essentials in grand style with full protection.
When you feel the soft body and see the beautifully covered original Coblentz frame, and the smell of clean, rich leather greets you, right away you know that this is a very high quality handbag. Flip the latch to see a clean genuine Green silk lining. There is a slip pocket, a zippered security pocket and above that is another slip pocket that has the name: "Coblentz Original" and “Genuine Leather” in gold lettering. It is flawless inside.
The zipper works perfectly which is truly remarkable for its age. There is not one tear or stain inside and no shattering of the silk. It is clean and odor-free. None of those “old” smells. Close the latch and closes smoothly with that luxurious sound; that "thoomph, snap of resonance" that only a quality handbag can give. You know that sound.
On the outside, the artistic Parisian lines are evident and are deliberate. Mr. Coblentz worked with some of best French designers to create handbags for the elite. The outside leather is clean and supple has had only gentle and loving handling. The metalwork is gold-plated and clean and the twists holding the handles gleam with golden brilliance.
The tapered, handle is supple and has just the slightest touch of wear. A touch of leather cream will remedy it. This is truly a bag you can carry with gloves, if desired. It is really that nice. This is a Coblentz that is a true, very rare collectible as only a few of this style ever existed. It is doubtful that there are many, if any, left like this. You will not be disappointed with this gorgeous Coblentz.
This is a LARGE, luxurious handbag that measures 9 ½ " L x 9 ½ “H x 3”D and the handle affords the standard 7" drop.
