Vintage Speedy Bandouliere: Real or Fake?
I found this bag at a flea market in Austria. It was very dirty, missing the zipper pull and shoulder strap, corroded hardware and smelled like basement.
However the hardware and leather handles are extremely high quality. The interior is leather, but made me suspicious since it's unlike what is usually found.
I had it cleaned up and a new zipper pull created. The leather shop owner I took it to said he thought it is real, but very old. He sees a lot of them, as he's the only leather shop in town. I'm not convinced, but I'm curious as to the authenticity.
