1700's Man's Plaid Wool Wallet

There have been no fixes on this wallet.Measure 7 3/4" wide and 4 " high.It is a lovely tartan plaid of greens and red with the rust-orange tie.It would suggest a Scottish ancestry.Believed to be American.There are moth holes mainly on the back and a few small ones on the front and on the inside.There are some bare patches too.A textile that has survived for approx 300 years will show some wear.I say this as this is pretty rare to even find one.I have priced this accordingly.

Price: $390
