Absolutely stunning. This beautiful 1950’s original, Dofan Calfskin Framed Evening Bag from France is that and more. Made from genuine Calfskin, it is truly one that is artistic and elegant. Dofan was a maker of some of finest, most highly coveted handbags of the twentieth century. To this day, the premium French models, such as this sterling beauty are seldom seen and highly sought after. The reason; the high quality craftsmanship, the genuine gold plating, and the quality of the skins. This circa 1956 Dofan is in excellent condition.
When you first hold this Dofan, you will marvel at the smooth, soft feel of the calfskin. Then, contrary to the pictures, the depth of the gold-plating. The camera simply could capture the depth of color but, it is there and all of the metalwork shines with blinding brilliance. Lift the sculpted bar to see a clean, odor-free Copper lining. There are three pockets with one being zippered. The lining is clean and has only the slightest signs of use that is also of no significance.
Outside, the skins are clean and it has no breaks or cracks from age. The side gussets are supple and full. The handles are thick, supple, and intact. The original Dofan Guarantee is still inside. Amazing indeed.
This Dofan is an evening bag that will be the crowning touch to your attire to any formal event. It is a handbag that will bring many compliments and looks. You will smile whenever you carry it.
It measures in at 10”l x 8“H x 2 ½ “D and the handle affords a 6” drop.
