An extremely rare to find ‘Sac de Voyage’ for your early French dolls like Jumeau, Bru or other.
This original antique bag is searched-after not only for it’s small size but also because of it’s provenance : the maker is ‘gainerie’ Rotival –Paris, founded in 1895
“Rotival” is the maker of the luxurious, exquisite packaging for DIOR (bijoux haute joaillerie), CARTIER , LOUIS VUITTON and famous jewellery shops at Place Vendome -Paris.
The Rotival boxes are only used for the top-end items of these luxury branches. (called “les maisons de prestige” in France)
I can send you more info on Rotival.
