Antique Leather bag

A finely Embossed Antique Leather bag from Morocco.

With inner pockets and beautiful toggle ring closures.

I was recently told by a Moroccan academic that these smaller bags were given to young men for their first visit to Mosque to hold a Koran.

This fine example is on an original antique silk cord.

the suspending loop at the back of the bag has been repaired…see image 2

A rare and wonderful item. ( I have seen just three examples of this type during my years of visiting Morocco.)

18.5 cm x 15.5 cm
