Antique Leather case with metal corners, metal studs and heavy leather handle. Measurements are approximately 11" long, 7 1/4" wide and 7 1/2" tall without including the handle. The inside is cushioned with grey foam padding on all four sides. I'm not sure what this held but you can see the impressions of 4 round feet in the foam on the inside bottom of the box. The case is sturdy and heavy , so it probably held some scientific instrument or photographic equipment. The gold metal clasps are in excellent condition and work great.
There is some tape residue on the top and some writing is still visible within it. However, I am unable to read it. This tape residue will come off. I did remove a small amount at the end just to make sure. This is a great looking piece and could be functional for travel or storage and display.
