This set of two nesting suitcases is in a gorgeous dark hunter green color, and were made in the 1940s.
Both have the Initials EEC on them. Heavy duty, sturdy green plastic handles. Brass hardware that works beautifully. Contrast top-stitching around the edges. Elasticized pockets on the tops of both, as well as side and back pockets on the bottoms of both, as well as ties to help keep piles of clothing in place.
The smaller one measures 21" x 14" x 7" and fits inside of the larger one (nests).
This small one's interior is clean, but the elastic on the top and on the back section on the bottom has lost it's sproing a bit. It still helps to keep items separated, though.
The larger suitcase measures 26" x 16" x 8.75"
The elastic is ok on this one, too, but not super sproingy.
Combined weight, nested is 16# without any packaging.
Overall, these are in wonderful condition; they are not perfect, they do have some surface wear, a little bit of corner wear, but they really are fantastic, overall.
They are both sturdy and solid, and would be heavenly to pack your best in for a weekender getaway, if you're driving, but we do not recommend using these for flight travel, in our opinion, they are way too valuable to possibly allow the airlines to destroy them.
They also stack beautifully, as well, providing extra storage as well as attractive decor.
The price is for BOTH of them; we don't want to break up this wonderfully matching set.
