Newer screws replaced on outer hinge and two tacks are missing on added interior connector strip; however, lid is still attached by hinge. Newer screws on interior lid for handle attachment.As shown, there are some darker glue discolorations around edges of interior and cloth is pulling away in different areas. Positively, there is no old or musty odor. The carrying handles outer covering is coming apart on seams (see photo #4 and #12). Even with all of the above, I absolutely love, Love , LOVE this vintage piece!
Its unusual and sort of has a Jane Austen look. Use for a retro lightweight overnight case, sewing/knitting case, or just display... It can hold its own! 11 1/2H x 13 1/4W x 10D (w/ closed lid).
Handle: 2 5/8H x 5 1/4L. Please refer to all photos for accurate description.
