Antique brown crossbody bag leather shoulder bag
The title says it: this antique brown crossbody bag is a bit of a challenge, but could be very rewarding for someone who dares to take it on. This looks to be *quite* an old bag, the body has been split into 5 compartments with thick pieces of leather. The leather is now very stiff and smells slightly of dungeon. It could be used as an amazing prop piece for historical reenactment -as-is- or as a functioning bag if the effort is being made. I have already put a first layer of oil on it, so the front flap could be opened again.
Condition: Needs TLC - one loop for the shoulderstrap has been glued and won't hold much weight. The seams at the front and back are open (could be mended - the holes are not torn), the leather is very stiff and needs plenty of oil rubbing in to get it back to function. The shoulder strap with crackling, the metal parts with rust and discoloration. Musty smell.
Size: 7-1/4 x 5-1/2 x 1-1/4 inch
