We love these vintage doctor's bags. They have such a rich, elegant look and make incredible handbags or decor items.
This vintage beauty is made of genuine, top-quality cowhide which has been embossed to resemble crocodile skin.
It has a fantastic dark brown (almost black) color with hints of rich, orange-red around the edges of the scales.
The bag has two rigid leather-covered handles at the top. It opens on a sturdy frame to reveal a completely leather-lined interior.
There is a brass locking clasp on the front that features some nice, simple etching.
It shows a very light patina and a few small surface scratches, bit is in good, working condition overall.
We are thrilled to say that the original key is with the bag and works perfectly.
Four rubber feet at each corner on the bottom of the bag help prevent any scratching to surfaces or to the leather itself.
Here is where you will also find an embossed makers mark reading Upjohn Top Grain Genuine Cowhide.
The Upjohn Company was a very successful pharmaceutical manufacturer founded in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1886. Today, what is left of Upjohn is owned by Pfizer.
While this vintage doctor's bag shows a bit of wear and signs of age, its timeless quality still shines through.
With masterful top-stitching and excellent quality leather, this beauty remains in good vintage condition and is sure to be a delight for years to come.
