The top of the line in doctor bags, a Schell with beautifully supple
leather and working lock with two original keys. This bag has never been
used, but has been sealed and stored since some time in the late 1980s
just before Schell stopped production. It has all the wonderful
qualities of the Schell bags that were produced for decades and were
always the very best. Two large divided compartments with snap-lock
covers are inside, one set on each side. An adjustable strap with
several loops for holding bottles and instruments is in the bottom of
the bag. The original guarantee is even in it. Schell made the very best
doctor bags using very good leather and solid brass or nickel hardware.
One design feature in particular that made their bags so long-lasting -
their method of mounting the handles with metal ends connected to metal
rings instead of leather-to-metal as other bag makers did. This bag
would make an excellent gift for a serious collector or a med student
(one we restored went to a doctor in California who is now using it to make
house calls; another new one we sold to a doctor who had looked for one for 15
years!). Doctor bags have become a very collectable item; to find an
unused one of this quality is very rare indeed. This is only the
second new Schell bag we have ever found and it took us over five years. Just email us at
