This is one of the most beautiful 1970’s vintage Gladstone Satchels by Florentia from Florence, Italy to be found. This gorgeous beauty is resplendent in genuine Calfskin Leather in the colors of White and Soft Pink Calfskin with the Pink trim having floral arrangements embossed.
It is genuine vintage, authentic, and is truly outstanding. Known as the Florentine Framed Satchel, it is an elegant, striking handbag that exudes quality. Individually handmade in Florence, Italy, the quality is evident from every angle. From a private collection, it is in excellent condition.
Lift the antiqued solid Brass bars at the top to see the spotless clean Bronze Faille lining. There is a single, long, Triple “C” brand zippered security pocket. There is not one mark or stain inside. It smells as clean as the day it was made. The Gladstone style is also known as Doctor’s Satchels and this gem has the hinged sides that open wide to access all of your essentials easily.
Not often will you ever see and handbag of this color in such good condition as they are usually well worn. Not so with this model and looking closely at the pictures, it is evident that this Florentia was very well cared for. Only the faintest signs of very careful use on an otherwise, pristine beauty. Even the bottom is clean and the piping has no wear.
The side gussets are spotless clean and the Calfskin covered frame works smoothly, as it should. The handle is remarkable as it is fully adjustable to allow you to arm carry this gorgeous satchel, if desired.
Outside, the Calfskin is clean, soft, supple, and shines with brilliance. There is a post for a lock but this model never came with one.
This is a highly desired Florentia Gladstone as it is seldom do you ever see one of these in such splendid condition. There are no holes, tears, or odors, and the brass is clean.
The dimensions are MASSIVE! 13 ¼ ” L x 8”H x 8” D and the adjustable, removable handle affords a 7” drop.
It is an outstanding Satchel and if you are a collector of fine, unique, very rare handbags, this Florentia is it by far. You will love this one.
