A deep oak tone with a very even grain, no immediately visible wear, patina or burnishing, just a tiny dark 0.5mm dot to the middle of the top curve and a very light, diagonal fingernail scratch to the lower, front middle, (as shown).
On the middle rear of the bag there is a slightly lighter, 3cm round area where the grain looks 'orangier' when you inspect very closely. Shown with the zoom in the Gallery above, to the naked eye this is barely visible.
All stitching strong and inking (edge sealent) in place.
Lots of scratches and surface dinks, (from contacting with the chain) to the Postmans Lock Plate. There is friction related finish loss around the turnlock hole and a little to the bottom perimeter curve.
Minor friction rubbing between the underside plates from contact.
The interwoven chain and leather shoulder strap is excellent.
Lined in clean, microfibre with a couple of dark marks to the upper RH side of the top flap, as shown.
Made in England
28cm wide x 20cm high x 9cm deep.
Intertwined leather and chain shoulder strap as has a mid point drop of 28cm & 53cm
