Bandolier bags have a wide, beaded shoulder strap and a rectangular lower section that sometimes has a pocket. They were made primarily for show, although they were sometimes used to carry belongings. Some late nineteenth/early twentieth-century bags have false pockets, pocket openings that were too small to fit a hand, or no pockets at all. Such bags were made for fashion, not function, and could be an indicator of the wearer's status and wealth. Bead Bag, Pocket, Bandoli Bag
