    Neiman Marcus Fortnight Set of Four Vintage Framed Shopping Bags
    Condition: 2
    18.5" Width x 23.5" Height x 1.25" Depth (Framed)
    This set includes an assortment of four Neiman Marcus Fortnight shopping bags each presented in a black wooden frame with a white background under plexiglass.

    This set includes bags from the following Fortnight celebrations:
    Danish Fortnight, October 19-31, 1964
    British Fortnight, October 15-27, 1973
    A German Fortnight, 1983
    Britain Then & Now Fortnight, October 15 - November 3, 1984

    These bags show signs of age and wear. Not examined out of frame. The frames are in great condition with minor signs of handling. Additionally, the Britain Then & Now frame shows a small chip.

    For nearly 30 years, the Neiman Marcus Group held an annual two-week long landmark celebration aptly named "Fornight". This event was widely loved and much anticipated as each affair was inspired by a different nation, transporting the attending guests to the diverse cultures and luxuries of the world all while at the Dallas Flagship location.

    Property from an Important Corporate Collection.
