So without further ado, lets delve into my Fave Five vintage cases...
1. 1960s Vintage Rich Tan Leather Doctors Bag/Briefcase £44
This fantastic classic doctors bag is in a rich and warm brown leather. Silver metal push-lock closure and two carry handles. The original key is not attached but the case is unlocked and usable. Measures approx 17" x 12” x 6". There are some slight scratches and scuffs in keeping with age which add character but generally this is in very good vintage condition.
1960s Vintage Antler Red Leather Suitcase £60
We just love this awesome vintage suitcase, made by the revered luggage brand Antler in the 1960s. Red textured leather with a soft shell top and bottom but reinforced sides and edges. Matching red leather-coated carry handle and two gold metal suitcase locks. Inside is lined with fabric and there are three elasticated pouches to aid with packing smaller items. There is a faded sticker on the outer case which gives this great case even more retro character. The top has de-pressed a little when the case is empty but this is still perfect for use as luggage or for interior design, storage or a prop. Outer measurements approx 20.5" x 13.5" x 6.5". In good vintage condition.
3. Original 1960s Vintage Grey/Blue Suitcase £45
Fantastic sixties vintage suitcase in an unusual dark grey/blue colour that looks black in some lights. Grey patterned lining inside and two front locks in brass tone. Original key attached inside. Used and aged but this adds to the character and the locks still work perfectly well. Measures approx 20” x 15” x 6”. Generally in very good vintage condition.
4. 1960s Vintage Tan Distressed Doctor's Bag/Briefcase £42
Fantastic and character-filled original vintage doctors bag in rich tan brown leather. Four large internal compartments and a brass-tone push-lock closure. The original key is not attached but the case is unlocked and usable. Measures approx 17" x 12” x 6”. The case is very well used and has many marks and scratches plus it leans a little. This adds character and the case is generally in good vintage condition and usable.
5. Original 1960s Vintage Small Teal Suitcase £38
Fantastic sixties vintage suitcase in an attractive and unusual teal colour. Labelled In silver metal with Spartan logo. Grey patterned lining inside and two front locks in brass tone (no keys).
