WOW, this is just too cool! This is tooled leather work on the front and back of this folder is so well done you think it is actually an embroidered design! The leather is a rich gold color with golden yellow webbing around the edges. The front design has embossed geometrical designs in three bands forming a square. The larges band in the center has had the leather dyed to wonderful gold, browns and reds. The center design has an urn with fruit and two winged, fire breathing dragons, one on each side, coming up the sides, looping their necks together so the heads are facing opposite directions. The bottom portion of the main design has flowers and vines. Beautiful reds, greens, brown and gold's have been used in the center design. The back has one flying dragon within an oval in the center. It has four flowers in a fleur de lis like shape in the corners of an embossed rectangle. Beautiful embossed triangles and circular shapes decorate the back around the dragon and flowers. The inside of the folder has seen better days. It is lined with a watered silk fabric and at one time had three folders that would overlay each other. The silk wrapped folders are still barely hanging on. You could use them as dividers. I would probably cut them off or have them reattached somehow. We use this as a display piece on your coffee table in the great room, definitely a conversation piece!
