Bacon and Ham Bag HC13

A rectangular calico bag. Printing on bag reads 'Salisbury, Fancy Cured Bacon and Hams. W & R Fletcher NZ Ltd. Wellington and Auckland'.

Bags to store cooked ham are traditionally made of calico although some people believe an old pillow case will suffice. The bag is soaked in water and vinegar to keep the ham moist.
