Classic Tortoise Bakelite bags are increasingly difficult to find, especially in this sparking clean condition. This unmarked example is very similar to marked Rialto examples, differing only in its slim, rod handles and the arched top edge of the Presto Latch. The design of the lid carving is seen on other signed Rialto bags and. Care and storage of these bags is critical to their survival. This one shows no sign of chemical changes and it will include a silica packet to prevent moisture condensation inside when in storage. Excellent condition with only slight lacquer ware to the latch hardware. Measures an ample 8 1/4 x 4 1/4 x 5".

This item was part of the archives of the Bag Lady Emporium, originally in operation from 1996 through 2022 (Inventory ID F00005).
