I recently purchased this leather shoulder bag, handbag, it only has a G---symbol with a buffalo on the face of the lock, (see picture) ? No markings inside the bag or outside ! Only the marking on the lock !

I dont know what kind or type of bag this is ????

If someone can help me identify this bag ? I would really appreciate it .

Thank you.

    thriftfan, do you know what kind/type of handbag this is ?

    I wish! What does the inside look like-are there different compartments or one big, open area? Does the leather piece on top of the bag look like it should hold anything?

    Under the flap, two small compartments, then one large compartment, then a zipper compartment in the back of the bag. The inside is leather, looks like new leather. The outside of this bag look worn and old ? The leather strap at the top of the bag just looks like a regular hand held strap.
    Any suggestions or comments etc. would be appreciated . Thank you.

    I still havent been able to locate any information for G. Bison, and any similar handbags etc., I only see Bison maker of handbags/purses, nothing similar to the one I posted earlier. Any other leads, informations etc. please let me know ?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    The buffalo may not be part of the name.It may signify that the bag is made of buffalo leather.

    I'm thinking this may be a camera bag.
