Recently discovered this - don't know anything about it. Google doesn't provide anything. It is in rough shape. Looks and smells like it has seen many years. The only tag is the one pictured. The leather is has a light patina, with the original color(that's apparent under the flaps) is a darker more reddish color. It is thinly constructed, some of the leather is in rough shape and very dried out. The leather areas that have been least affected by age feel quite nice, a very high end texture. The zippers are kind of ugly, but seem to be of superior quality. Couple of questions- 1) Anyone ever heard of Lidia? 2) Any tips on total overhaul/rehab for this thing? It certainly needs to be cleaned, softened up and brightened.

These two are more indicative or true color.

Note: zippers read "AilÃ
e", very small
