This is the original vintage Brahmin Sapphire Melbourne Framed Satchel. This seldom-seen gem was only made for a short time and never released again. With its distinctive, deliberate 1950s vintage styling, and that stunning colour, this is a Brahmin that stands out. This Brahmin is from a private collection, and it is in excellent condition.
This stunning Brahmin, a true valise; is quite large and very spacious. Made of Crocodile-embossed leather, it is lined with the Beige glove-soft Signature microfiber fabric lining and Leather-trimmed pockets that are immaculate, odour-free, and spacious. This meticulously cared-for Brahmin is a very elegant, eye-catching handbag.
Open the leather-wrapped snap and the smell of clean high-quality leather greets you. Then, open either of the two zippered security pockets to see the clean lining. The small security pocket is above two leather-trimmed slip pockets. Even inside, this Brahmin pays homage to the 1950s with the arrangement of the pockets and the placement of the Brahmin badge.
On the outside front, there is a full-length flap with a hidden magnetic snap that has a flawless pocket for quick access. On the back is another full-length slip pocket that is similarly flawless, as well. The leather-wrapped frame works smoothly and closes with that familiar, “thoompf” sound.
The handles are intact and supple. They are attached with oversized, gleaming solid brass rings stamped with the Brahmin name. On the bottom, for this Brahmin to rest are four solid brass feet. The solid brass metalwork in every Brahmin is a world-class quality you can see and feel.
This Brahmin is a very high-quality, upscale handbag, and should you own it, you will agree. This entire Brahmin is clean and shines beautifully. The leather has a brilliant shine and weight. No odours, no stains, no wear on the piping, and no marks.
The Brahmin Leather Works Company is located and founded in 1982 in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. At first, making items for only a few friends. A purse so good, a “Brahmin” would be proud to own it, as it went. It grew and the reputation grew until now, there is almost a cult following with Brahmins. Vintage Brahmins in such splendid condition as this unique Brahmin are very rare.
This is a very spacious satchel that is sized just right. The dimensions are 12” tapering to 15” L x 10” H x 5” D and the handles afford a 6” drop. Easily carried in the crook of your arm. Again, this Brahmin is a valise, a true handbag, and a strap was not offered.
