Showing very little evidence of use, this wonderfully soft and supple Bal is crafted from a beautifully vintaged lambskin in a glorious royal bluey, purple shade.
Changing colour in the light, it can look deep and intense in the sunshine, whilst more subdued in darker light, almost as if to change with the mood of the day!
No marks or scuffs, the corners display only the lightest use with a little darkening the surface of the front LH corner.
Top handles are firm, undarkened with all whipstitching strong but as is so often seen on these pieces, the inking, (edge sealant) flexes at the side loops and reverse handle bases (see close up Photos above). Extremely minor and very difficult to see in normal use.
Hardware is excellent, without dulling and only the tiniest scratches to the side O rings where the shoulder strap clips attach.
The mirror, tassles and detachable shoulder strap are excellent and the interior of the bag is fully lined in clean, black cotton showing only light use.
