Known as either a Gladstone bag or a doctors bag, it has been made in natural crocodile skin and is a deep ruby red in colour. The skin retains its original sheen. You can tell that this bag has hardly been used by the strong handle which appears to have little to no wear. The skins also have been very well matched through out. The interior has one small blemish on the silk and there are two pockets. The locking function with original key is in excellent working condition.
