An original bookmakers bag.
This bag would have been used at the horse races by the bookmaker.
Dating to circa 1960s, the leather bag is in good, worn condition, with wear as would be expected from many years of use.
Hand painted, with the name of the bookmaker, the large bag measures approx 58 cm ( 23 ins) wide by 33 cm (13 ins) high, not including handle, by 18 cm (7 ins) deep at base, it is heavy and well-made, weighing just under 4.5 kg.
A great piece of decor, the bag comes with various bookmaker tattersalls tickets.
The handle is in good, worn (as expected), but unbroken condition. The bag opens both front and back by pressing the metal buttons on the top. No key.
If you require any further information, please get in touch.

Based in Kent, I have been trading for over 15 years, starting off at the local fairs, but now mainly trading online via Twitter and Instagram, at Detling Antiques Fair and out of Chart Sutton Antiques Centre in Kent.

My main problem is that I like so many areas in the antiques and collectable world, I therefore deal in everything from the traditional items such as Georgian and Victorian silver and small furniture, to decorative items and lighting, along with the odd and weird.

One of the best things about the job is that you just never know what you may come across next.

I am always happy to provide as much information as I possibly can regarding any item, so please if you see anything of interest or you just have a general query or question, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
