  • Final sale, no international shipping. HISTORY: Lederer de Paris, Inc., one of the oldest European luxury brands, was founded in Europe by Ludwig Lederer in 1808. By the 1930s, it was operating over 20 boutiques worldwide: in London, Paris, Berlin, Vienna, and Budapest. Their first store in the United States was opened in New York City at 711 Fifth Avenue in June 1939. Since then, this over-100-year-old corporation, run by the three generations of Mr. Lederer’s followers, has changed ownership several times, yet still remains in operation worldwide as a distinguished maker of fine leather goods.
