Venture back to the 1930's with this quality vintage McBrine hard-shell pigskin leather suitcase with brass fittings and reinforced outer edges. Beautifully aged patina lend charisma to the dark tan pigskin exterior. Locks & clasps were made by "Presto U.S.A" and the case comes with its original key. Inside is finished with a maroon/purple fabric lining with four functional elastic pockets.
There are scratches and scuffs consistent with its age and frequent usage; all of which lends provenance, unique character and glamour to this old world piece of luggage. Airport stamps on the suitcase indicate travel to/from the Philippines, Hong Kong and Vancouver. No other identifiable markings found on or in the suitcase aside from the famous "McBrine Baggage" red & brass plaque located near the handle.
Dimensions: 18" x 14" x 7". Weighs approximately 6 pounds.
USAGE: Displays nicely in a retro, vintage, art deco/Boho decor or use for decorative repurposing. Suitable for contemporary travel, this luggage can be used today.
CONDITION: Very good; some scratches and wear as this was a well-used suitcase. Stitched seams are tight and all in good order; components are very sturdy - the handle, hinges and locks all function as they should. Inside lining has a couple of spots of isolated staining but nothing terrible.
