    Hello all,

    I have these three bags that I think are from the 60s. I found them all together and I think they were all owned by the same lady. One, not pictured, had dated tickets/receipts etc in it that were all from the early 70s, but I feel that these bags are older than that. I think this because of the clasps, I've been googling types of clasps a lot.
    I'm very curious as to what they are made of. Are they all real skin? If so, what animals? And do you agree with the 60s estimate?
    The brown one has a zip from a company that was around from 1950 until 1964 - Rondo Zips Australia, and is a Gold Crest design. Gold Crest was started in 1954 and is no longer around. They seemed to have the most success in the 50s and 60s. So I am fairly sure the brown one has to be 60s. The green one has no labels and the zip is branded YKK. The white one has no tags or labels on the clasp or zip.

    Thank you in advance for your help.
