Perugia's Automne #2 patent was filed September 20, 1920 and granted almost one year later (August 9, 1921). The Musèe de la Chaussure de Romans dates the model 1923 and it is probably due to the late appearance in Vogue (January 1923). Unusual but not unprecedented.
Just one question: where's Automne #1?
