DRESSNER HAS A COMPLETE LINE OF GENUINE LAMBSKIN AND FINE FABRIC BAGS at $35.65 Per doz. 3/10 E.O.M.
Why Dressner Lambskin is Superior.
Dressner lambskin is superior because Dressner skins are always selected at their softest, a year in advance of ordinary maturity, thus guaranteeing finer texture, mellower richness and smoother feeling.
