Japanese painted leather wallet, 1920s
The wallet came from a New England estate along with several very high end dresses from the same period. Our captivating wallet personifies the style of its owner: individual, brilliant, and impulsive.
The leather wallet is embossed and painted with a fiery dragon. It is lined with printed navy/white cotton. The interior has two compartments, one with a fold over flap.
The condition is almost excellent. The wallet has been gently used.
It measures 5 1/2" by 3 1/2" when folded.
