An antic red vinyl bucket bag decorated with gold tone hardware and repeating band of the iconic horseshoe logo made for the American market by Etienne Aigner. The outside of the bag has a simple form, with the aforementioned horseshoe logo design embossed on the top, a solid band across the base, and the logo pattern repeats on the bottom. The Etienne Aigner horseshoe gold tone medallion is affixed to the front. A plastic zipper opens to reveal a cloth-lined open compartment and single zipper pocket. The bag measures 12" across, 12" tall, with an additional 17" or more when factoring in the adjustable shoulder strap drop, and has an internal depth is 10 3/4." The inside pocket has a sewn-in medallion and the bag is in good original condition with moderate signs of use and would benefit from a gentle cleaning.
From Wikipedia: Etienne Aigner was born in Hungary in 1904. First a bookbinder, he started creating high-end leather goods such as handbags and belts for boutiques in Paris. In 1950, after apprenticing with Christian Dior and Cristobal Balenciaga, he came to New York to expand his business. The brand's signature color is called "Antic Red" and the Aigner logo is the letter "A" shaped into a horseshoe. "AIGNER gave its products a rural, countrystyle feel. There was always a sense of the racecourse, a feeling of being by the fireside. A phenomenon that can still be felt today" (quote source: www.aignermunich.com). Mr. Aigner died in New York City in 2000 at the age of 96.
