Antonini Glasses Case
One of our favourites!
A soft and slim glasses case for protecting your reading glasses. In butter-soft calf leather, and a variety of colours, they have become one of our most popular gifts.
Also available in a larger size, with a removable strap.
Part of our Antonini collection, handmade to order in the hills outside Florence, they coordinate well with other popular Antonini gifts such as the keyring case, small spectacle case and our own envelope clutch.
Size: 15cms L x 6.3cms H
This family firm uses only the softest Italian calf leather, a completely supple, fine-grained leather in gorgeous colours. The Antoninis are true craftsmen and women, specialists in their unique form of small leathergoods construction, using few or no linings and hand-turning the edges of each piece of leather. As well as the softness, we love the vibrant colours and of course, love the fact that they are still made by the Antonini family in such a lovely part of the world.
It really is a family firm - with the second generation now involved, based in a small village, with the workshop at the rear of the family house, horses out the front, and hills all around. We have visited the workshop several times, and though there is not much English spoken by the older generation, and our Italian is a little rudimentary, it is really a pleasure to know the Antonini family and to have their beautiful products in our stores.
