Vintage 1940's-1950's BELL SYSTEM Canvas & Leather Tool Bag Part II... Selvedge Details

Vintage Bell System Canvas & Leather Repairman's Tool Bag #4. 
These bags are often found in garages, hanging in barns and in outdoor storage sheds where they have been sitting for decades, exposed to the elements including moisture, extreme hot & cold temperature changes, dirt & petroleum products. Needless to say, these elements are not leather's best friends. If not for the water damaged leather bottom, this would be one of the nicer examples from the archive

Selvedge detail can be seen on the upper edge above the frame rivets, running the length of the bag. This version features heavy duty aluminum roller buckles

  4. Due to its substantial covering, the leather can feel firm, and cold. It has had the essential component of toughness (epidermis) disintegrated through the sanding system. https://www.pinterest.com/danitruno/handmade-leather-checkbook-covers/
