This is a Very Unusual Antique c1900 Massive Map Tube carrying case. Heavy Brass fitting on a black anodized tube. Leather handle with wear and age cracking. You could still use this to carry maps or drawing and sketches for an artist. This is a great piece for a masculine office or man cave. It sort of has a Nautical feel to it. Great overall condition for its age. Some tarnishing to the Brass as shown in the pictures. The dimensions are 31" long by 6" round not including the handle. It weighs just over 8 lbs.
