This comes with its original John F cloth dust bag. There is no maker's mark or country of origin on the bag, but it is GUARANTEED to be John F/made in Italy.

This did have a shoulder strap at one time but I have been unable to locate it. Should I discover its whereabouts at any point, I will either add it to the listing or notify the bag's new owner.

Size:

- 11 1/2" tall (not including handle)
- 8 3/4" wide across front/back
- when the middle "book" section is unzipped it is 17 1/2" wide
- 1 1/2" wide at side bottom but will expand to 4 1/2"

Condition: This is in lovingly used but good vintage condition. All hardware is original and in good working order although there are superficial scratches to the metal. The leather on the handle is intact but has some edge wear. The bag's exterior has minor scuffing/scratches and there is some color transfer to both sides of the "book". There is some generalized wear to the leather, primarily on the bottom, but there are no tears or cracks. The back bottom is a bit squished from storage but should recup once the bag is filled. The top stitching is tight, although there may be a pokey thread or 2. The cloth dust bag has some discoloration.

Sold AS IS for cash only at the time of item pick-up. No moving assistance is available so bring a buddy for larger items. Call and please leave message if we are not available.
