1981 Canada Post Mail Bag

Vintage Find

A vintage canvas mail bag, used by the Canadian Postal Service. Canada Post has been using these bags for over a century. They are well-guarded and rare to come across. We almost don't want to part with them. We have two bags available, one marked from 1981, and the other from 1980. This bag is in the best condition, of the two. Made of highly durable canvas cloth, dated and heat stamped with the royal Canadian emblem. Each bag has a nylon drawstring, secured with a steel fastener. We've given these bags a good soak and cleaning, but as with any vintage fabric, some minor ware from use and aged patina is irreversible. We like the history that comes with old things, and actually think patina is great. Use it to catch scarves and accessories at the front door, as a pillow cover, or just as decoration.

Measures 20" by 21"
