Irish Potato Bag – 1970s plastic lined sisal market bag
|Online Auction Description|
A market bag of open weave sisal with a thin, flexible plastic lining.
This item was advertised for sale in the 1970s in Sphere Magazine. It was called an irish Potato Bag and was supposedly for carrying a bunch of potatoes to â or maybe, from - market.
I doubt this Potato Bag ever actually met a potato.
The material is of mixed light and dark earth-colored strands of what I believe is sisal in an over-and-under weave. The handles are plaited and fastened to the body of the bag and to themselves with small metal tubes, making them very strong.
The bottom is about 16â x 6â with a stiffening piece attached to the body with 6 shiny metal fasteners that look like the heads of upholstery tacks.
It stands about 11â tall with a wide turnover that holds the opening firm.
Internet searches turned up nothing at all like this.
It's in great shape, ready to be put to use toting a grandchild's toys or your groceries. Be the first in your town (county? state?) to own one!
