This is a stunning vintage black eel skin briefcase. This briefcase features a black eel skin exterior with gold tone metal locking latches and four brass feet on the bottom. The combination for the locks is included. The interior is suede-lined with a diamond design in the center. There are three folder-sized compartments that expand when unsnapped at the sides, two vertical fold-over compartments, four pen slot and three business card-sized pockets. Wow!
There is some finish loss on the gold tone metal of the latches and on the sides of the handle. Aside from that, this case is in excellent condition. It measures 16 1/2" L X 11" H X 2 1/2" D. Eel skin is forty times stronger than leather and has the most amazing feel to it. This briefcase is simply fabulous and is made to last a lifetime.
