We’re not sure what the Czechs used these bags to carry, but we believe that that are a 1940’s to 1950’s style bag. They have a nice elongated shape which would be ideal for carrying documents, books or tablets. The bags are a brownish green cotton canvas with a nice wide adjustable shoulder strap. Three inner compartments. To close the bag are two old fashioned wooden toggles. Measures 10” x 11” x 3 ½”. Used, nice condition.
