An original, all-leather Vintage Tool or Brush set bag - at one time this was the "must-have" style of thick leather tool bag used by the railway, electricity and water companies. This genuine French Leather bag is marked with the name BROSSETTE OUTILLAGE. Brossette meaning brushes and outillage meaning tools - the tools used for the photographs are not included in this sale.

The bag is in good used Vintage condition and not having been used for fifty years or so, the leather has somewhat stiff - but it will soften again with use and care. As the leather is so thick, it will last for many, many more years.  It could also make a great centrepiece in a window display or similar for a hardware shop.    AND.......while it was intended for tools in a working environment, this is now an original and unique fashion-piece - a stunning Vintage Unisex Shoulder Bag.
