I don't believe it will hold air without a little TLC. These old punching bags are quite rare! The bag measures 16 1/2 long in its present deflated condition. It has a 7 diameter deflated, I'm sure it is quite a bit bigger when inflated.
Moisten needle, Inflate not over 6 pounds. It definitely has seen better days. The leather is dried and cracked with some areas of discoloration. All the sticting is still intact though. Some of the lacing is missing.
