Large mid 19th century civilian bag
« on: July 05, 2022, 04:01:44 PM »
New mid 19th century civilian bag. This 9"x11" bag leather bag has a 7x7 inner pocket. Its made from 3/4oz veg tan, covered in pillowticking, and hand sewn with waxed linen threat. The bag also has a 1" strap featuring a John Rader forged buckle and a brass button to hold the leather lined lid down. Aged pretty hard, and finished in bear fat and beeswax. The shape for the stitching on the button tab was inspired by the early pistol cartridge box's button tab.
