Excellent Vintage Condition: Still a stong but well loved bag of over seventy year old. The centre join on the top bar is showing the metal, one inside pocket is coming away at the top. The edges of the bag are piped and these show wear and age, however this really does add to the patina of the bag, the handles are strong.
