Tooled leather ID wallet Arcachon French oyster fishing vintage 20th century

Product Description

Vintage tooled leather wallet from Arcachon in France.
Embossed with a picture of women oyster fishers with their nets, poles etc.
Fastens with a stud (the old-fashioned type popular before the war).
4.25" x 3" (11 cm x 7.5 cm) approx. when closed.
Brown leather.
The inside contains several clear compartments, presumably designed to hold ID cards, photographs, business cards or season tickets.
They are larger than a modern credit card, and I would GUESS the wallet was probably made around the 1950s/1960s.


Condition

Vintage wallet, which has clearly been used rather a lot.
The leather is faded, rubbed and cracked, particularly on the outside along the fold line, as shown.
The wallet looks very nice, but is really too delicate to use, because of the cracking.
