Here is a fabulous and rare turn of the century carrying case for a cat or small dog. Woven from reed and trimmed with old leather, the carrier has a strong handle and air vents at the front and back, along with latches and a central lock (currently not working). As this is a special and unusual antique collectible it may not be advisable, for the sake of the box or the pet, to use it for a living creature! It would make a fun display, open with a large realistic toy animal inside! The central lock is not working, both side latches are fully functional. The size and weight of this box may incur additional shipping costs. Length 9 ins (22.75cm), width 15.5 ins (39.56cm), depth 12 ins (30.25cm). Weight 1824 grams. This item can be seen in the book, "Antique Boxes - Inside and Out", on page 283.
