This nice smaller catcher's mitt made a great crossbody / shoulder purse / bag. The front side is the actual glove which was probably made in the 1940's given the very old style. This was obviously a childs model from the size of the purse which is 9.5" in diameter. The strap is adjustable and attached with swivel hooks to prevent tangling straps. You access the inside from the top and the inside is lined with dark leather as well. All real leather and is a one of a kind purse. You will always be the only person with a purse like this.
