This is another rare, vintage, leather bag from my personal collection! These bags were made in the 1970s and 80s for a shop in Santa Fe, nm that is no longer in business. They were totally handmade in Mexico.
This is a very special one, since it comes with, not only 14 handmade silver conchos, but a handmade, ornately decorated, sterling silver ranger buckle set on the strap! Thirteen of the conchos are hand stamped and repoussed from coin silver. The center concho on the flap is sterling silver and has an etched Western design. The three piece buckle set shows ornate western designs and is stamped USA and Sterling on the back. The leather bag itself is handmade and all the edges are laced with leather.
Scalloped designs decorate the flap and body details. The cross-body strap is woven leather. There is a spur hallmark on the inside of the flap.There was also a little larger one that was made. These bags were long ago discontinued and are highly collectible today. The bag shows only light wear and some scuffing on the corners. There are slight color variations, which adds to the great vintage patina that the bag has. Bag measures 11" by 10 1/4" by 1 1/4. Strap at longest adjustment 23 1/4 from center top of strap to top of bag. Can be adjusted up to 2 shorter. Center concho 1 1/2 diameter.
