Just finished a nice little Portmanteau.
It measures 8 1/2" long by 4 1/2" round ends. The flap overlaps 3/4" on each side.
The strap measures 3/4" and John Rader made the iron hardware.
An 7/8 Oz., grade #1 hide was used and sewn with Victors 100% linen thread using a saddle stitch.
The entire exterior of the bag was finished with antiquing gel and rubbed to complete the antique finish.
Priced at $220.00 with free shipping to the lower 48 and AK.

What time period would this fall into?
There is documentation that the French Military Officers carried their "coats" in a Portmanteau. (Coat carrier) in the 1700's and into the 1800's.
The original were larger to accommodate their regimental coats, but I'm sure there were examples of smaller versions.
