Serrouchen child’s Antique leather bag.

A Serrouchen dyed and scored antique leather bag from Morocco.

With inner pockets and the typical castellated edging to the front panel.

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.

The leathers are dyed in red and yellow, with added green edging. There are pen marks on the back of the bag! I purchased it in a roadside remote shop of diverse treasures! Someone there had undertaken a calculation on the back!21.5 cm x 23 cm

A rare and wonderful item. (this is the only smaller Serrouchen bag i have ever seen. The larger versions reach very high prices.)

18.5 cm x 15.5 cm
