I have done a lot of research but have come up with nothing. It’s metal that appears to be brass wrapped in leather. The top raises up off the bottom part which looks to be some type of container. It’s about 7 1/4” long, about 6 3/4” wide and about 2 1/2” deep. The braided leather strap is about 9” long, and the tassels are about 9” long. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    You're welcome. Hope you get an identification. I'll make a wild guess: camel saddlebag.

    Really? That could be it. I thought maybe it was something that maybe someone carried on a horse saddle, but wasn't sure.
    Thanks

    Thanks, everyone. Yes, I'm in the US, as I live in Virginia and this was purchased at a thrift store in North Carolina. I knew if anyone knew what it was, it would be someone on this website. Again, thank you all so much!!

    :p Ugh! This description! Hard to imagine anything leather from Africa would have survived to become "antique" but perhaps if it's been in climatized storage for most of it's life.

    But, same seller has yet another (although I have not looked for it) - and this seems rather, flooding the market with these things "Similar one for sale in separate listing" so I doubt it to be antique or authentic. Looks like a fantasy item to me.
