A truly fabulous leather satchel, very much Art Deco in style, featuring Egyptian revival embossing front and back, and a mirrored insert, with multi pocket sections, a zipped section, and a new cotton striped strap with adjustable length. Just WOW! The embossing is sharp and clear, and the leather is in excellent condition for its age, I would say it has hardly been used.


The mirror inside has a few fogging spots from age (to be expected), but perfectly usable, no cracks or chips. The zip runs smoothly, and the snap closing the outer flap is secure. The pockets inside are a camel coloured softer leather, with some age spots but nothing unexpected. The zip pocket is lined with cotton.


There is a small leather handle on the top edge should you want to carry it in your hande, and the long strap is both adjustable and detachable, and adds a modern practicality. Metal trims are silver. It is stamped made in Cairo, Egypt, and believed to date to the 1920s.
