This is an absolutely beautiful late 50s, early 60s, handtooled dark chocolate shoulder bag with fixable issues (see pic 3).

♦ The bad news first. Both side gusset pieces have torn loose at the bottom of the bag. I took it to a local leather shop who tried to restitch it. Three days, and $28.00 later, the stitches did not hold. They said that the only way to fix the problem would be to take the purse apart, replace the gussets and the strap (which is worn), and resew it.
♦ The good news: the tooled front, back, and flap are in glorious shape! A few light scratches and wear marks, and could use cleaning and reconditioning (I’ve done neither). The interior is clean, very roomy, and the two zippers work perfectly. The bag has great “bones.”

If you, or someone you know, is knowledgeable about leather working, this would be a great upcycle project to keep or resell! I’m selling it AS IS for what I have in it. Any questions, do please convo me!
