Hello the attached was found when recovering an old chair bought in a car boot sale in Liverpool. It was used to hold the stuffing. Its in good condition apart from the tack holes. Has anyone seen an item like this before. Its made of hessian and appears to have had handles at the top and printed in ink. I would to be able to date it from the prices advertised and obviously know its value.

That must be the remains of a passport or ticket holder. Have seen several of them from different lines like White Star, NDL & Red Star. Can not say the value. Have seen some sold for 20 US $ others for 100 US $ depending on the condition and which shipping line and of course if there is interest.

Sorry I should have put the size of the hessian cloth - its about 20 inches by 20 inches in size obvious cut from a larger hessian bag - so far too big to be a holder for passport or tickets.

I can not say much about the dimensions, I have only had one in my hand a few years ago. I only knew there were different sizes. However I haven't seen any bag.
