Quite rare and marvelous vintage 1930s or 1920s suitcase from Germany. Chestnut brown with brass fittings, metal handle, plaid paper lining, and webbing buckle down straps inside. Marked "Echt Vulkanfiber" (finest vulcanized fiber) on one side. Tough, hard shell with reinforced corners.

Super sturdy and water resistant yet lightweight. Large enough to hold a week's worth, or a great storage / decor piece for home or office.

24" x 16" x 8"

For such an old suitcase this is in very good condition, still in its original shape and not bent. One side has some scratching in the surface, as shown. Handle and latches are tight and functional. Some marks and gaps in the lining inside. Straps are intact. 1 hinge is missing on the side but the other three: 2 brass back hinges and 1 metal side hinge are still sturdy and do not affect the suitcase's movement.


shipping note: this is a very large piece that will make a heavy package. But please note that Canadian and International rates are estimates only. It's shop policy to refund any overages of $2 or more, so buy with confidence: if you've overpaid for shipping, you'll get it back from us.
