Lederhosen Novelty Change Purse (Be Happy When You Have Full Pants)
Vintage lederhosen small novelty coin purse souvenir. Sei froh, wenn Du die hose voll hast ("be happy when you have full pants") Gruss aus Halblech ("greetings fro Halblech" - an area in Southern Bavaria). When you un-snap the crotch area, it says "Da ist nir" (slang for "there is nothing here").
Items like this gained popularity across Germany as the economy improved in the mid to late 1930's and more people started traveling.
These tiny pants are in decent condition; it does show some aging, staining and general wear. There is a pattern printed on the crotch, but it is discolored and hard to see. The zipper is marked "Ultra" and has some rust. Still a fun piece. It measures about 3 5/8" tall and 4" at the widest.
