I haven't been able to identify the exact model or production date but looking at pictures of similar older-style Aigner bags online the color of this bag is most likely what was called Oxblood. Inside it simply says "Aigner hand made" (see photograph below).
What I love about this very simple shoulder bag is the structure and attention to detail in the construction. The leather has been beautifully molded into a sturdy, yet poetic curve at each bottom corner. The metal hardware is all intact and, though it had accumulated a fair bit of tarnish, shined up nicely with a jewelry cleaning cloth. All in all, this is a unique piece of arm candy that will be a useful and stylish addition to my purse collection.
Oh and one other thing, the sumptuous red and gold fabric the bag is displayed against is a scarf my bff Namrata gave me when she visited this fall. I featured her in my Rainy Day Reads post on Boston's famed Brattle Book Shop. My, but it's fun to have such fashionable friends!
