Vintage Three Piece Matching Samsonite Luggage Set
A three piece matching set of mid century hardside Samsonite luggage. Made in the USA by Shwayder Brothers Inc (Denver/Detroit). Outer finish is a marbled tan vinyl. Insides are very nice; free of stains, rips or obvious odors.
You wouldn't want to be taking these on a plane - all together they weigh in at an astonishing 40 pounds.
#1 - Small travel suitcase, comes with 3 Samsonite hangers that fit into a bracket inside the case. Inside is finished with grey satin. Has a hinged brass and wooden bar for keeping items secured inside the upper lid section. There is some wear to the material at the end of the satin separator (see photo...) but it's not all that significant. Measures 21" x 18" x 9" at the bottom.
#2 - Mid size travel suitcase. Measures 26" x 18" with a thickness of 9" on the bottom. Features a hinged middle sectional piece that's framed in sturdy metal and covered with satin cloth. Has two tiedowns and dual elastic pockets. Very clean inside.
#3 - Wardrobe suitcase. Features 4 clasps on three sides for opening the case. the interior is finished in a brown houndstooth type pattern. The lower section has two removable shelves and a pulldown cloth drape that snaps closed. The upper section has two spanning elastic tiedowns as well as yet another draped separator. Inside there are 6 original hangers that slide in and out of a hanging bracket at the top of the suitcase. Absolutely gorgeous interior. Outer edging is done in genuine leather, not vinyl. Has dual handles (one on top, the other on the side). Measures 30" x 20½" x 10" at the bottom.
Includes all three original Samsonite keys (2 with original orange plastic sleeves).
All were owned by the same person. Stickers/tape are still attached to the outside by the owner.
CONDITION: Outer wear associated with travel and use. The usual bumps, scuffs and wear - most noticeable to the reinforced vinyl corners. Brass clasps have some scrapes, but all brass hardware (hinges, clasps, locks) all function perfectly. All pouch elastics are still nice and tight.
