Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Post war Poland issue caramel leather tote bag, machine made but lacking any metal hardware, circa late 1940s/ early 1950s.
Two hand carry top handles, exterior pocket with flap closure, the interior is unlined and has a remvoable rigid bottom panel.
Thick and sturdy leather -this weighs nearly 2.5 lbs.
"POLAND" is stamped on the front side of the bag, at about pocket flap height.

Signs of wear and use, including sme darkening and spotting to the leather, some softening and missing stitches to the tops of the double ply handles, and a bit of sagging to the bottom corners.

This bag's wear and tear only add to it's beauty.
Super solid, with a wonderful old leather smell.
Super clean interior, exterior as shown.
some light scrapes and scuffs, but the leather has held up wonderfully- no worn through spots or issues beyond visual distressing from years and years of use.

Depending on what you carry inside, this can easily rectangle through the body- it seems to have been stored as shown but still has tell-tale side creases.
An incredible bag!

15.75" across the top edge - when laying flat
11.25" wide when the bag takes a more rectangular shape
11" wide across the bottom
14.5" high
5.75" deep
the exterior pocket is 7.75" x 7.25"
the handles are 12" in length/ 6" drop

As noted, this weighs 2.5 lbs unboxed. I'm estimating 4 lbs. properly packed. If quoted shipping costs are higher than actual costs, I will refund the difference via Paypal.
