Vintage French military messenger style bag. Very sturdy construction from a combination of heavy duty canvas and leather. Bag is great for every day use or outdoor excursions!

Bags have textured green body, hemp or heavy cotton canvas with nude or natural leather trim and interior. Measurements are generally approx 3 1/4" deep x 11 5/8 wide" x 6" tall interior. Flap interiors are generally stamped in black ink with military id markings.

This photo is representative of the bags being listed. The bag in the photos has already been sold, but they are all very similar. I have more photos available to show different angles, please convo if you would like to see these.

There are two, 1 3/8" dee rings on bottom of bag and two 1 3/4" wide leather strap loops on back of bag. Leather carry strap is approx 1 3/8" wide & generally have a drop measuring from approx 39" to 50".

The interior compartments were removed, the original stitching/stitch marks are still visible on the front & back, 3 vertical stitch lines. I have a listing in my store for a bag with the compartments intact.

Bags have been in storage for some time, are dirty, could use a good clean, I take a good stiff brush to them before shipping out. Need some airing out, very musty smelling. The leather is in good shape, but generally stiff and discolored...could use conditioning. There are loose threads from the removed compartments, don't affect the bag's stability. Brass rivets have green corrosion present due to oxidation. I check all the rivets & replace any that are too corroded.

US shipping is via insured priority mail, I refund any overage paid, $1 or over, for shipping costs.
