"A handsome line of large grained
and smooth calf bags is being shown at Chic de Paris, 362 Fifth Ave. Black, navy, coffee, bone and maple are the featured colors of the line which will retail from $18.95 to $35. The bags are large in size for the most part and many feature handy outside pockets. One model has two zipper pockets on the outside for that extra room so important for travel use. The lines of the bags are sleek and decoration is minimal; some have subdued gold trim others are decorated with gold-finish nailheads. All the bags are leather lined."
