Smithsonian Castle Leather Wallet
|A Smithsonian Institution Exclusive|
Clever American designs + pebbled Italian leather (subtly embossed with the silhouette of our iconic Smithsonian Castle) = a stylish, stash-and-carry handheld you won’t want to live without. The compact Smithsonian Castle Leather Wallet with 8 credit card slots, currency holder and back stash pocket is secured with a beautiful “Castle” window snap. Imported.
Affectionately known as “The Castle,” the 1855 Smithsonian Institution Building was designed by American architect James Renwick, Jr. to emulate England’s oldest universities. It counts among its Medieval-Revival architectural details a large circular window above the entrance facing the National Mall. Architectural windows like this date back to medieval cathedrals and were always placed high to catch the light.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
