Snapsack Off-White Canvas
This tubular shoulder bag is easily documented in 17th century artwork. The stomach-shaped description given in the Royal Society’s 1742 book, “Philisophical Transactions and Collections” matches depictions in paintings and prints as late as 1755. Our recommendation is that this style is best for the period prior to the 1760s. Made with unbleached cotton canvas. It measures 11” at it’s widest spot by 32” long. The shoulder strap is durable cotton webbing made adjustable with a double-D brass buckle. The ties are sewn into the seam.
