What is this?!

After scouring the internet high and low, I have yet to find a definitive answer as to what function this item serves:

My first thought is wine carrier, especially because MADE IN ITALY is stamped on leather.  The strap shows wear and the metal components of the strap do not look new.  Lined in thick black fabric, needlepoint on outside.

Any vintage buffs out there who can shed some light on this?

  1. A few questions for you sister...

    Why do you have it?

    Where did you get it?

    How much did you pay for it?

    Are you planning on keeping it (depending on its use) or putting it on etsy?

    You never cease to amaze me with your finds. Can't wait to go thrifting this winter. I have plans on stocking up on some clothes for James and Hannah and maybe even a little something-something for me. :)
