Vintage Japanese Parcel Post Canvas Mail Bag

This is a very useful, large, Vintage Japanese Parcel Post Canvas Mail Bag. It is very sturdy, having a reinforced shape and base like a kit/duffel bag, a sewn in rope neck, and a hefty strap for tightening the neck.
In fairly good condition with some rust spots, a few small holes, creasing and fading, and some staining.

Approximate Maximum Size when laid flat:
* Length: 100cm
* Width: 65cm

These post bags are great for craft projects, (I've seen them made into floor pillows), but also good as novelty storage/laundry bags or Christmas present sacks!

It is marked on the sides with:
* The Japanese symbol 〒 (郵便記号 yūbin kigō), which is the service mark of Japan Post and its successor, Japan Post Holdings, the postal operator in Japan.
* 114663 (I'm not sure what this number signifies)
* Japanese Parcel Post

The mark 〒is a stylised katakana syllable te (テ), from the word teishin (逓信 communications) and introduced on February 8th, 1887.
