This is a beautiful vintage mahogany brown leather Italian made Mark Cross Briefcase or Attache with striking brass hardware. (Please see photos, color varies from mahogany to brown based on light)

The case includes a detachable leather shoulder strap with brass spring clips that fasten to brass rings on the sides of the case. The case is large enough to hold your IPad or Ultra book along with other important books and files. There are two inside gussets (compartments) with a zippered full size pouch separating them. The case also has brass feet to prevent damage to the bottom leather when setting it down.

The case is in excellent condition. The Inside is very clean and it was either lovingly cared for or used sparingly. However, like all vintage leather briefcases, there is some scuffing to outside leather. Please look at the pictures carefully to see the cases condition and feel free to ask questions about this briefcase.

The house became known simply as Mark Cross when Patrick Murphy acquired the company after its namesake’s death, and opened shops in New York and London. Expansion overseas translated to first-time access to luxuries yet unknown to the American market. Their Briefcases are listed among the 200 Best High End Briefcases by "The International Man" . http://www.theinternationalman.com/accessories/attache-briefcases.php#best-top-high-end-luxury-attache-cases-briefcases-M A tooled-leather MARK CROSS BRIEFCASE played a symbolic role in David Fincher's 1997 film THE GAME starring Michael Douglas as the contemporary Scrooge Nicholas Van Orton.
