Sale--Vintage / Antique leather hat box from the 1920's or 1930's, luggage, black and brown, was $80. now $50.

This vintage leather hat box is from our family and was used in the 20's or 30's. It is well worn and is loosing trim along the bottom edges and has a lot of damage to the underside where it would have been placed on the luggage stand or floor. The bottom (side) has been pushed in on the backside which has caused the stitching to come undone and some of the old leather trim is gone. The handle and the leather that holds it on the hat box is in great shape as are all three clasps. The top would show for display and the sides aren't bad. There is some wear to the lining inside and it does have a very old, musty, smell to it. I will be happy to take additional pictures of this hat box if you'd like. It is missing the center piece that would have kept the hat from shifting.

Although this has some wear, it would make a wonderful display piece. It is being sold as-is. The size is generous at 16 inches round and 9 inches deep.

My grandmother had a vast collection of items that came from our family in the 1800's to the 30's when the last of that side of the family passed. The women on that side (my grandfathers side) led very interesting lives and enjoyed the finer things (and did quite a bit of sewing). One of grandpas aunts was an opera singer and one was on "The Ford Hour" , and some of their items (both flashy and utilitarian) will be coming to my etsy shop. This hat box came from that estate--I wish that I knew which of the aunts owned it!

This piece does show more wear than the other pieces that grandma had. It has a musty smell if opened, but if used for display it will be fine. It would make a great little table if you put legs on the bottom.
