More from London: Leather bag ca. 1930′s, probably a variation on a cartridge bag and used to hold extra ammunition while out on the hunt, designed to take a good beating out in the field. It’s ladylike and manly at the same time, and you know I always like to fall somewhere in between. Well suited to hold all types of ammo (including red lipstick).
Leather aged 80+ years has ineffably cool qualities and nuances, every year adds another dimension to the texture and color.
Silver plated hardware, lovely patina to the strap.
This bag came from The Vintage Emporium, tucked away in Shoreditch, and home to the most incredible collection of dresses from the 1900′s – 1930′s that I had ever seen, like eyes-a-poppin’. If you’re in town and ya like the frocks, mark an X on this spot. Also a very nice selection of leather goods and small but nice offering of mens. Cute scruffy doggies, too, will give you kisses, and when don’t you need some of those.
