ANTIQUE LEATHER BOSTON BAG
Found this unusual bag at an Estate Sale
The family said it belonged to their great grandfather who traveled a lot by train and coach, and apparently the numbers were painted on the bag to easily identify one's bag as these bags were very common back then
Made of Genuine Cowhide
Very worn from age
Not sure if the hinges are brass or some other metal
Leather handle
Four metal stud feet
Roomy interior with four pockets
Fleur de lis symbol on the inside metal button
Looks like some type of makers mark stamped into the leather as seen in photograph #9 but cannot make out what it is.
Dates to the late 1800's to early 1900's
Size: 17" Long x 7" Wide x 11" Tall
