A grayish leather crossbody shoulder bag from Etienne Aigner.  The outside of the handbag has a simple rounded shape at the top, open pockets in the front and back closed with magnetic snaps, and a gold tone Etienne horseshoe logo to the front.  The bag is opened with a plastic zipper to reveal a central cloth-lined open compartment and small zipper pocket on the side.  The Etienne Aigner leather medallion is affixed to the zipper pocket.  The handbag measures 9 1/2" long, 3" wide, and 7 3/4" high, with a strap drop of 22".  The bag has light rubbing to the leather piping due to age and use, but is generally in very good condition.  

Etienne Aigner of New York

From Wilipedia:  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.
