On the inside lid, it bears the official stamp of King George VI, as seen in the oscar winning film The King's Speech.
It has the name M. Le Blanc cc340 written at the top of the interior lid.
I would imagine this was a documents case for a top civil servant or government official, as the King's stamp denotes seniority.
The lock works perfectly, but I don't have the key. The inside is lined in fabric and the exterior is leather faced.
It measures 9 3/4 inches wide, 7 inches from the front to the back (excluding the handle) and 4 1/2 inches high.
The condition is very good; it has some scuffs and scratches and the odd mark, but overall it's in really fine fettle for a used item of 80 odd years old.
It would be a super addition to any collection, excellent display or practical piece, or authentic period prop.
Thanks for looking and please cast a glance at my other vintage and historical items.
