Crafted from a wonderfully thick, robust and sturdy hide, its supple but stands up when empty and is a real work horse of a bag.
A glorious rich patina, she's characterful with fingernail scuffs, 'dimpled' corner curves, a small surface scuff to the side RH panel, near the base and a scratch to the rolled piping on the rear LH corner trim.
Gentle undulations to the top flap, base corners are a little dry and the shoulder straps are nicely softened, displaying slight darkening to the top area where they have been hand held.
Inking, (edge sealent) is entirely in place around the top aperture, though dry and lightly crackled to handle bases, sides of straps and around the top flap inlets.
Light friction rubbing between the undersides of the plates, lots of finish loss to the turnlock sides and some scratches to the Postmans Lock as shown in the photos above.
Scratching to the base feet with some finish loss to their apex which appears a slightly bronzer tone.
Self lined in ruffled suede with a zipped pocket and two slip pockets. Blue pen marking can be noted throughout the interior as shown above.
