Anne Marie Paris Vintage 1940s Champagne Bottle Black Suede Gold Box Bag
Absolutely divine, rarest of the rare, Anne Marie of Paris handbag from the 1940s. Legend has it that these bags were gifted to the VIP guests of the high-end Le Meurice Hotel in Paris, waiting for them upon arrival as if they were real bottles of bubbly. This surrealist purse features a 3D Champagne bottle motif in black velvety suede. Rigid, box exterior with gold tone framing, hardware, 'corks', details, and wraps around the bottles. CHAMPAGNE embossed in gold on the front. Lift lock closure. Fits iPhone and other essentials. Fully lined in black satin, the inner stamp reads: Anne-Marie, 228 Rue de Rivoli, Hotel Meurice, Paris. These highly coveted bags are hard to come by and extremely sought after by bag collectors, held by the Met Museum and others, and we are very excited to have one!
