A fine wallet of reddish-brown "Russia" leather, 4-1/8" x 7-3/8", with flap and two inner divisions with a goatskin divide. The outer faces elaborately embellished with tooled floral motifs and words, highlighted by silver wire embroidery, the name "Gerrit Reesren Jansoon" is tooled on the front of the wallet body (beneath the flap and goatskin inner flap), while the opposite or back of the wallet bears "Constantinopoli / 1710." The flap is lined with natural brown linen and there is a narrow leather gore sewn on each side of the wallet body, to allow for expansion. CONDITION: The leather still supple, with some light scuffing/abrasion marks to the outer faces; there is a 1-1/8" rent immediately to the left of the centered hook or male portion of a steel clasp riveted to the center of the flap (possibly a later addition), the corresponding female portion on the front body cut with seven adjustment slots and superimposed over the "r" of the middle name.
