    Fantastic Set of 19th Century Medical Saddle Bags Filled With Vintage Medical Bottles. Brown harness leather, each box/bag measuring approximately 8 ¼" x 5 ½" x 6". Each box is equipped with fitted compartments for safely carrying bottles of medicine. A total of 32 small, empty medicine bottles, most retaining their cork stoppers and paper labels are sold with the saddle bags. Lightly tooled on the top lid of each box is "Dr. V. G." Both lids are secured by a leather strap and metal buckle (one side with the tip of the leather strap broken). The bags display honest use consistent with the wear incurred by a country doctor. The leather is cracked on the surface and worn in all the right spots. A rarely encountered 19th century medical item in good condition.
