About Leather handbag model Brillant, Ceci n’est pas un Delvaux by Maison Delvaux
Founded a year before the nation, in 1829, Delvaux is a Belgian house that creates and manufactures exceptional bags.
The "Brillant" model was conceived in 1958 and immediately established itself as the absolute icon of the house.
In 2008, imbued with Belgian surrealism and in order to celebrate the 50 years of the model, Delvaux imagines a Brillant “surrealist” bag on which is sewn in white leather the sentence “Ceci n’est pas un Delvaux” borrowed from the famous painting by René Magritte. "La Trahision des images" on which is painted a pipe underlined with the phrase "Ceci n’est pas une pipe".
Our bag is made of black box leather, it is medium in size (Humour Brillant moyen modèle) and the accessories are in black chrome in gunmetal color.
It comes with its original shoulder strap.
Fully lined in soft beige calfskin.
In new condition, it has never been used and is in its "dust bag" as delivered from the store. The bag bears two stamps, one “Delvaux 1829 with a crown” Belgium is a kingdom and Delvaux is a supplier of the Royal Family, another stamp “MADE IN FRANCE”.
Once the prerogative of a few happy Belgian few, Delvaux handbags are now enjoying great success across the Atlantic.
The Brillant bag has been spotted worn by stars such as Angelina Jolie, Lady Gaga or more recently Rihanna who wears the exact model that we present to you.
