Because of Mary Poppins, I have a certain fondness for carpet bags, and this one is especially nice----a beautiful mix of bright & dark greens, golds, blues, & red on a black background in a cute slouchy pouchy shape. It has a rounded frame, covered in black faux leather to match the handle, and a chunky sculptural clasp at the top that makes a nice satisfying 'snap' when closed. Inside is lined in black faille fabric, and it has a clear little snap pocket attached to the inside with a golden chain. It's in wonderful condition too, very clean with no flaws or odors and only a smidgen of rubwear on the clasp.
It's not too big, but because of its softly-structured pouchy shape, it can carry an impressive amount of stuff. It measures approximately 14" at its widest and 10" tall without the clasp. The rolled handle has a 6" drop.
And remember, when you carry a carpet bag, you're in glad company...Abraham Lincoln carried one, Rhett Butler, and of course, Mary Poppins too.
