Nothing wimpy here; quality and character that stands out and stands the test of a truly rugged lifestyle. Invest in a bag that you'll love more and more over time.Not all leather bags are created the same. A great quality leather bag is supposed to look better with time as the leather acquires marks and age-related wear. Make sure to check out my whole store. At the time of this listing, I have 180 items all unique and different. Once you have tried it you will wonder how you functioned before without an inside handle. Also on many of my briefcases, I add a mooseskin handle wrap. The handle is the point of contact that the owner has with their bag and mooseskin is so pleasing to touch.
My philosophy in writing descriptions is: a picture speaks 1000 words. That said, here is my description. What I love about this suitcase is the quality construction and beautiful clean red interior, as well as the wonderful reproduction hotel & railroad travel stickers. I have sprayed a varnish on these so they will not come off any-time soon. Stickers usually give up their stick after awhile.So I varnish them to give them a little bit of a vintage look as well as a seal to keep them on for a long time. The four Interior pockets all have an elastic type material and the snap is all still there.
So many cases today have saggy inside pouch-pockets; these are all strong. This beautiful piece was made by a now defunct WILT Luggage Company that was based in Chicago. The heritage of this company goes back to 1862 when it was founded by Charles T. I found this about Irene R. Wilt one of his descendants: She and her husband, Colin D.
Wilt, operated the Wilt Trunk Co. Beginning in 1930, with a luggage manufacturing plant on the North Side and two Charles T. Retail outlets at 232 S. After her husband`s death in 1949 she continued the business until 1960. I like that there are 4 ingredients that make up this great case.Leather, Wood, Vynil (Protective Cover over the leather; prevents water mark damage) and Metal (Silver Color) clasps, with combination lock set to 000 by the world renown Sesamee Lock Company. Sesamee was acquired by Corbin Luggage Company in 1946.
I date this case 1950's but it could go back earlier. I have used my "bag whispering" skills and fixed up a couple of the corners that needed to be repaired.
I like the sides have a definite lip which makes this case a beautiful piece to make for an end table or place to put your mouse and remotes next to your favorite chair. The lip on the edge (see photo 1) makes it easy to keep your items close without falling off the edge. I have never seen a case that would make the perfect end table like this one.The measurements, in inches, are approximately: 27 x 22 x 8. Great for any of the following cars luggage racks: Jaguar XK8, MGA, Austin Healey 100/4 100/6 3000, Triumph TR7, Nissan Figaro, Datsun 260Z, Jaguar XK 150, Daimler Dart (SP250), Mercedes 380 SL, Boxter, Mazda MX5, Miata PRHT, VW Beetle Convertable, Mercedes Sport SLK Series, Mercedes-Benz SL Series,'63 Chevy Bel Air Wagon, MG, TC, TD , TF, MGA, MGB, Porsche 356... This beautiful bag comes from a smoke-free home in Minnetonka Minnesota. To many, I have added unique functional modifications and made repairs giving each bag that coveted well-loved look.
