Genuine Lizard | Peter Robinson 1960


DKK 1175,-

Peter Robinson opened his first women’s drapery at Oxford Circus in London in 1833. By 1850 the store was so successful that he opened several stores and a department store in areas of London, with focus on high quality women’s fashion and accessories. Over time he expanded his chain and named it Peter Robinson’s Topshops. The chain was later bought and in 1974 the Top Shop name superseded.

This handbag made from genuine lizard is an example of the finest handcraft and attention to detail. A true collectors item in its original box. The handbag was bought in November 1960 in the original Peter Robinson Oxford Circus.
