This sweet and scary vintage carry-on case features colorful illustrations of Little Red Riding Hood, Grandma and the Wicked Wolf from a 1950s children's book of fairy tales. Sweet and scary together is so wickedly exciting- have you seen Grimm? See?

The carry-on luggage piece features a collage on the front side of various scenes from the story including the wolf knocking on the door, in bed and lurking in the stylized woods; Little Red approaching the wolf and offering her basket to Grandma. The collage has been heavily varnished with hard coat varnish to protect it.

The outside of the round hard-sided case is a bright red faux snakeskin, which adds to its strangeness, yet looks so fashionable. It has gold-colored metal hardware which looks slightly rusty and very old. The outside of the suitcase shows it has been a few places but is still in very good condition with some scrapes and scuffs from its past travel adventures. The handle is a sturdy loop handle on the top attached to a metal piece. The metal zipper works well and holds the case closed securely.

The off-white plastic vinyl fabric inside is in pretty decent shape. There is one rip at the folding hinge area and a few tiny rust stains on the vinyl. The case inside has the typical smell like vintage vinyl, but not moldy or musty.

The case measures 10 3/4" tall, 11 1/2" wide (not completely round) and 4" thick. It can stand on its end or lay flat.

Vintage cases like this are art pieces and not meant to be checked-in luggage for airlines, trains or bus drivers to manhandle. If you purchase this, expect to use it as a carry-on, for car travel, to carry things in for an overnight stay, or as a make-up case. It would also be beautiful just as room decor. It is vintage fabulous!

Watch out for danger on your travel adventures....wolves are lurking everywhere......
