Large Red Leather Pocketbook with Buff Interior


Red leather pocketbooks were quite common in the 18th to early 19th century in a great variety of styles from plain to quite elaborate. This one has two pockets along with a pencil holder at the top. This pocketbook is made to fit modern money being 7 by 4 inches (17.8 by 10 cm). For a written example of their use this is taken from London's The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, of 1763 in a "grand larceny" trial "I'll search the gentleman myself. It was a red leather pocketbook with the notes in it as mentioned in the indictment."
