Mora who?

Jean-Baptiste Morabito started his house in 1905,  in Nice, France.  He specialized in making beautiful jewellery and by the 1920’s he became known for hand-made luggage and baggage. Crocodile was his specialty. Aristocracy loved his products and when Ms. Monroe called wanting a vanity case for travelling, he of course obliged her. The Morabito house continues it’s legacy today, giving Hermes a run for their money! So why not pamper yourself, Marilyn style?

From top to bottom our collection of 1960’s croc Morabito’s measure as follows. Navy croc double handle purse 10″ x 3″ x 7.5″. Kelly style black croc purse with red lining, 10″ x 3″ x 7” Sold. The last two bags are the same model, just different sizes. The black croc Sr. measures 12″ x 3.5″ x 7″. And the Jr. black croc is 11″ x 3″ x 6.5“Sold. They are all in pristine condition, never were they used. Please contact us for more details.
