This size of suitcase was long referred to as a train case because it was the piece of luggage most women would pack their cosmetics and / or personals within to keep close to them when they traveled on the train. Whether used for luggage or storage these little vintage cases aren't just neat for decor but also a nice place to store items from make up to dolls to documents. This suitcase appears well traveled with quite a few dings to its leather like grainy exterior. The color is a grayish blue almost navy with a lighter blue handle and a thin white decorative pinstripe. The silver colored hardware is fully functional. There is no key present. The interior is lined with a lighter blue printed paper that shows some soiling but remains intact. The mirror within the lid is in excellent condition. Though not very photogenic, the 1940's case is in overall quite good condition. It carries its makers name : "Vacationer" and measures 12 1/4" long (across the front and back) x 8 " wide (each side) x 6 1/4" tall.
The suitcase weighs almost 3 pounds with a packaged shipping weight of 4 pounds.
