Vintage Doctor Bag, Steampunk, Schell Emdee Top Grain Cowhide Doctor's Bag or Case, Extra Large Travel Bag

The doctor is in! Hard-side extra large doctor's medical case has two sturdy handles and a working closing mechanism (no key), finished in aged dark leather with a pebbled texture. The bottom of the case is embossed with the Schell Emdee logo and the words "Top Grain Cowhide". Opening Pandora style to a fully lined interior, the two top halves are hinged and include a lidded storage bin on either side, with strapped snap fasteners. At the base of one main interior wall, there are loops for securing bottles or vials. This is a substantial, heavy antique period piece that brings to mind an era when doctors made house calls. If this bag could talk, it would certainly have some interesting stories to tell.

The manufacturers plate near the lock reads "PATENT NO 2293363 Emdee by SCHELL" -- which refers to the lock, not the bag -- and was issued in 1942. No other visible indication of the bag's model name/number or date manufactured is present, but Schell was known for quality doctor's bags using exceptional leather and solid hardware.

When closed, outside dimensions are approximately 17"l x 9"w x 12"h. Opens to 21" wide.

The lock mechanism appear to be missing a base plate, which does not interfere with the function of the fastener. Interior lining, stitching and all other hardware appear to be intact. Exterior leather has an appealing distressed look. Handles show surface wear, but are strong. This is a truly unique vintage item loaded with history and charm.

If you would like to see more photographs please convo me! This item is very heavy and well made! Will ship parcel post for shipping savings, as this piece is solid!
