A good sized, grained leather Kit or Square Mouthed Bag with a linen lined interior.

The bag has reinforced leather corners to the base and nine dome studs to raise it off the ground. It has a brass slide lock between the carrying handles and is further fixed by two short straps and two belts that loop the full girth of the bag and are fixed with rivets to the base. Each strap is also held in place by four belt loops. These straps are interesting because they have a feature not often seen. Each strap has a pair of brass rings, one to each side, near the top. They are sewn into the belts and would have been used to attach the bag to pack saddle on a beast of burden. Although not named to any owner this might suggest a military owner.

The bag is well made and can be considered large. An exceptional kit bag. Late 19th Century.
