1960s Roberta di Camerino 2 Piece Travel Bag Set 

 

 

 

 

With our penchant for large bags, we were just about beside ourselves when we laid eyes on this travel bag set, thinking, at last we've found a bag large enough to suit our needs.  Alas, we can't bear to break up the perfect marriage of the set, so, we're reluctantly not getting too attached to it. Designed in a doctor's satchel style,  the bodies of both bags is constructed in a tightly woven twill canvas, woven with a trompe l'oeil tortoise shell and 'leather' design in russet brown and a yellow-tinged beige.  The di Camerino logo 'R' is woven into the curved trompe l'oeil 'leather' tag on the front of each bag. As with most di Camerino bags, the clasping mechanism is innovative and unique - a hinged gold toned metal tab on either end of the bag that snaps over a ball at the top of frame. The handles of both bags is the same woven twill, the smaller bag has a leather reinforcing where it attaches to the rings at the top of the bag, the larger tote does not have the leather reinforcement. The interior of each bag is lined in light brown leather, and has one zippered pocket and two slip pockets.  The measurements of the grande dame or larger bag  is a whopping 17" wide by 11" high and 3.5" deep. The smaller, petite dame, measures 11.5" wide by 7" high and 2" deep.  Both bags have about a 4" drop on the handle to the top of the bag.  On the large bag, there is some very minor wear on the bottom corners, one area of the hinge on the frame, and the strap - otherwise, both bags are in excellent condition.   $675
