This vintage leather envelope style satchel was most likely originally used as a bag to take money or checks to the bank at the end of a business day. My Father had one almost exactly like this that he would have had from at least as early as the 1940's. He used his to store important bills, receipts, documents, a small ledger, and "paper" cash. It was his "man bag" when he went to the bank on business.
This very simply styled document or money bag is unmarked and appears to be hand crafted, machine sewn, large grain leather. It has brass colored hardware with a turn style clasp. The bag has likely been well used over the years though it remains in Excellent Condition. It is dark brown and there is a small amount of scuffing at the bottom corners that a bit of polish would easily remedy. The stitching is intact. There is one, one inch, red ink mark inside and no other marks found. It measures 10 1/2" x 5 1/2".
