Wonderfully vintage style of the 40s and 50s, is reflected in this sleek, leather look suitcase. Useful for actually traveling but moreso for a display piece that also can serve for attractive storage. Stylishly stackable with other vintage suitcases or put together for a coffee table or end table that again does double duty as storage. Great in an apartment, condo, or anywhere you need more space.

History of the vintage reddish brown hard case suitcase begins In 1910 when five Shwayder brothers founded the Shwayder Trunk Company in Denver, Colorado. In 1931 they changed the name to Shwayder Brothers; and in 1939 they introduced their first suitcase dubbed "Samsonite", choosing the name Samson to reflect the quality, strength and durability of their suitcases.

Seventy to eighty year old hard side suitcase. Solid construction. Latches on the top close properly. Stitching around the edges is intact (see photos). See other photos of top, sides, ends, and bottom for usage wear and minor scratches. Cloth interior is in very good condition. Elastic on the pockets is still stretchy and they are very clean. Ribbon is wrinkled. See photo of spot on the inside hard surface and photo of black spots on the underside of the cloth divider. Hooks and eyes that hold the divider in place are in very good condition. No key. All together an excellent suitcase for travel, storage, or stylish display.

$35 OBO.
