This is a lovely, Italian leather shoulder bag with one zipped pocket and double, narrow straps. It's an early 70s shape, from a time when shoulder bags were really beginning to be the trend, and continental package holidays were affordable and popular.
It fastens at the top with a long, double ended zip. Internally, there is one zipped pocket and a label with the make and words 'Made in Italy Obermaterial leder', so I imagine it was made for the German - or at least, the tourist - market.
The front decoration is, I suppose, more of a knot than a bow - two pieces of leather twisted together; the back is plain. Although used, it is clean inside and out, with minimal signs of wear. Approximate measurements are 10 ¼ by 7 ½ inches (27 x 19 cms), and about 2 inches (5cms) wide at the base; the straps are effectively 43 inches long (108.5 cms).
