Genuine leather wallet with an Augustus Siebe (c. 1840) diving helmet debossed in the centre front of the wallet. This was the first popular design of diving helmet manufactured by Augustus Siebe. It was the precursor to the Admiralty Pattern 6-bolt diving helmet that was introduced in 1904.
The wallet is made of a soft, matte brown leather and is approx. 112 mm x 102 mm x 25 mm when closed (about 4.5 in x 4 in x 1 in). Due to the natural variation of tones in a leather hide, no two wallets are identical.
The wallet has two full length pockets for notes, 11 credit card pockets and a window for an ID card or driving licence. A miniature (credit-card sized) reproduction of Augustus Siebe’s trade card is included.
The image of the helmet in the centre of the front is of the wallet is 50 mm x 40 mm (approx. 2 in x 1.6 in).
It is supplied in an attractive gold-coloured gift box. The perfect gift for a diver.
