I love cardboard suitcases, i really do. Often called the poor man's suitcase, i prefer to think of it as a clever utilitarian construction. This tiny suitcase probably belonged to a small child, but could be used for a doll or as a photo prop. It shows some wear, the inside paper is torn and missing along the bottom. The edges are a little bashed up (see last photo) but all the seams are fine, the handle and clasp as well. A very sweet and nostalgic piece.

9 1/2 inches long, 6 inches high, 3 inches wide (24 cm, 15 cm, 7,5 cm)

I do offer layaway options, for large orders. I can split the payment into smaller increments, so long as the first payment is made at a specific date that we both agree to.
