Vintage French Leather Postman’s Bag


Vintage French Leather Postman’s Bag

This authentic vintage French leather postman’s bag probably dates back to the 1950’s and is both incredibly stylish yet very practical.

Originally the bag would have been strapped to a bicycle for easy transportation from the sorting office to the local postal area.

The outside is stamped “POSTES” and it has two original leather inner dividers plus a later added smaller pocket perfect for keys, phone etc.

The leather gusset of the bag has at some point in its life been sympathetically restored leaving the overall look of the bag totally authentic but strong and practical enough to use on a daily basis.

All stitching and buckles are in good working order. The leather has acquired a wonderful patina and is in good vintage condition but does have some bruising and marks consistent with a utility bag of this age. I have tried to show any imperfections in the images but if you have any questions or require further images please contact us.
