The Gidden bridle briefcase posted by RJ doesn't come around often. It's a stunning piece.

What do you all think is a fair price for this piece? I think I am going to take a shot at it

The Glenroyal brown bridle briefcase that RJ posted a while ago went for $304.00 on Ebay and it was unused. The Gidden appears to be in excellent condition, but it's still used. Gidden has not been available in the U.S. for a while (Bergdorf used to stock the wallets) and wasn't well known, at least in the U.S. So I'd guess that $300 would be fair.

Regards,

Steven

I cannot believe someone bid rather that bought. Crazy! That shoe will certainly finish a lot higher than $95

Uh, oh. Looks like some competitive bidding. I placed a bid on it and the black Papworth case early this morning - there's no such thing as "shotgun" rules for ebay bidding, I guess.

Funny, I got one for 15 pounds new on ebay.

I did not know that. Their website is still up, and I could have sworn I saw their shop window a few years ago.

Here's an admittedly ambiguous post from Bengal-stripe (they went out of business and then merged):

I may be wrong in my assertion that Gidden is entirely defunct, so I fixed my post. I do know that Bergdorf no longer stocks them and am not aware of any U.S. source.

I never understood this mentality. What's the point of bidding early? Raising the price? Why not just let the price get to where it's going to be and bid at the end?

the only advantage to an early bid is if there is no bid and it is a low price, (and you would be the first bidder) - it generally makes it harder for the seller to increase the initial bid price.

otherwise, yeah, just set a snipe.

W & H Gidden (Saddle makers with Royal Warrant, established 1806) used to have shop premises on the corner Clifford/Cork Street (Old Bond Street). I presume, but I don't know for certain, they had their own workshop somewhere.

Then the firm went under, shop closed, and emerged integrated into Schnieder boots. Whether, what re-emerged is actually the old company with any links to previously employed staff, or Schnieder just got to buy the name (and the Royal Warrant), rather like all those Savile Row firms which have lists of long defunct companies "integrated".

Quote:
In 1999 the Schnieder Boots company acquired W& H Gidden, who have been makers of saddles since 1806, when William and Henry Gidden made their first saddle. Within ten years, their work was renowned for its quality and precision. Since then, everything that W&H Gidden has made exemplifies the timeless qualities of English tradition.

One member of the Gidden family used to be the manager/owner of Maxwell in their previous incarnation in Vigo Street.
