Here the older and smaller version with stamped signature and date is shown. Franz Erhard Walther began making objects (…the work as a tool…) of fabric that invite the viewer to become active. Here a loop sewn onto the verso enables one to wear this triangle shaped pocket on a belt.

There are two versions: one with stamped signature and the year 1969 and one without. Apparently at some point not all editions were stamp signed and dated.
This work may be found with various titles like ‘Find a reason for this pocket’ or ‘Find a purpose for the bag’. In 1969 Wolfgang Feelisch advertised the multiple as “Find a purpose for the pocket”.
