Viscount's Leather Shoulder Bag


Category: Archive

Subcategory: Miscellaneous

A pigskin leather Shoulder Bag with blue leather lining.

The bag has a square mouth to enable it to stay open in a rigid position much like a kit bag. The bag's main compartment has a pocket to the back and is locked by 2 small and 1 central large slide catch. There is an additional pocket to the front of the bag which is marked H.A. below a 9 pearl coronet, suggesting it belonged to a Viscount. It's interesting that this is hidden by the bag flap. The adjustable shoulder strap wraps right around the bag for added strength. A good quality bag that is very useable today. Circa 1900.
