This is a Rolfs Marbled Brown Leather combination wallet, credit card holder and coin purse (with side pocket).

The wallet opens like a bi fold. Inside there are three slots for card and a leather flap with a plastic insert for additional card or photo storage. This insert has four windows to hold photos or cards. There is also a sleeve for currency. The wallet is 3 and 3/4 inches by 4 1/2 inches.

Condition:

The wallet is in very good condition. It has no rips, tears or holes and is structurally sound. However, like most vintage leather products ,there is some slight discoloration to the gold hardware. Some areas show some tarnish into silver. The side pocket located in the coin purse has frayed slightly. There is also a stamped "S" or "5" on the bottom right of the wallet. I actually didn't even notice this until taking pictures so it is barely noticeable. In addition, the plastic in the insert has stiffened slightly. You are still able to use the insert for credit cards! Please be sure to enlarge all pictures for clarification.

About Rolfs Leather Wallets:

AR Accessories Group, Inc. is best known as the maker of the Amity and Rolfs lines of personal leather goods. AR Accessories was formed as Amity Leather Products Company in 1915, by Robert H. Rolfs. Convinced that he could improve upon the personal leather goods that were being sold at the time, Rolfs rented a room upstairs from Peters' Store on Main Street in West Bend, Wisconsin, and using his entire life savings of a few dollars, he began designing, manufacturing, marketing, and selling his line of leather accessories. With the idea that fine leather goods made excellent gifts, he wanted to give his company a name that reflected the friendliness of gift giving. He eventually found just the right word to communicate that idea: Amity.

While the Depression emptied out a lot of wallets, it had no apparent effect on the demand for the wallets themselves. Amity continued to grow steadily during the 1930s, emerging during that decade as the largest personal leather goods manufacturer in the country. In 1932 the company introduced a new line of high quality billfolds named for its founder. The Rolfs line was an instant success, and within a few short years merchandise labeled "Rolfs" was being sold by more than 5,000 dealers nationwide. Two years later Amity acquired the LaGarde Handbag Company and moved it to West Bend, where it operated as The LaGarde Division. The handbag operation was later renamed the Rolfs Handbag Division.
