Sotheby’s Is Currently Running a Luxury Handbags Auction Sept 15-22

Not everything that is old must be thrown out, lovers of antiquities understand this very well. There are certain levels of craftsmanship that when applied on to the creation of an object, the piece becomes a monument that seemingly does not fade away.

Those who love wonderfully preserved bags as collectors items can tune in to the on-going online auction via https://www.sothebys.com/en/digital-catalogues/handbags-and-accessories?locale=en
