This is a neat old leather satchel from the quality luggage-makers HORN of St. Louis. It has terrific contrast top-stitching in a creamy white color, on traditional cognac medium brown smooth leather.

It has a Top Grain Cowhide tag inside, listing license number 11 of the Tanner's Council of America. Inside is also a zipped file pocket, which is attached to a flip top divider that has a twist closure.

this measures 19" across

13" high

and is 8" deep on the hinge end, tapering to 7".

This has double handles that are sturdy (reinforced metal) .

Estimated 1940s vintage.

Often these suitcases were designed to hold an overnight change of clothes (fresh shirt or two, socks, skivvies, dop kit) as well as a few necessary business items, making this perfect to accommodate a traveling salesman's needs.

This one was apparently well-used, as there are a few stains in the interior, and the handles do show a bit of wear, as well. There is also a single buckled strap across the bottom half, and a part of the matching strap...so half is missing.

This is still a very sturdy piece of luggage, and the exterior is great looking. Old suitcases like these do make a design statement when stacked together with an assortment of them (can be used as a side table with extra interior storage), or paired with some neat old cameras for a vintage travel display.

These vintage leather suitcases often run in the hundreds of dollars; we're pricing low with the issues mentioned in mind.
