This is a Canterbury Cordovan Burgundy Leather Briefcase- Distressed But Well Dressed. This Canterbury Briefcase is made of beautiful burgundy leather. Unfortunately, the leather is somewhat distressed. In addition, the shoulder strap for this bag is missing. However, in spite of these clouds there is a gold lining. Literally. According to my research the hardware on all Canterbury Cases is 24 karat gold. (See photo of Canterbury components in collage.)

All the leather on Canterbury cases is actually sewn through the wood frame. This is known as interlock stitch sewing. This is an old world method that ensures that the leather and the frame will permanently stay as one unit. Canterbury cases feature a variety of top grain leathers from the world's finest tanners. All Canterbury cases have solid wood frames. Each frame is constructed from Ponderosa pine with interlocking joints. Top-of-the-line presto combination locks are used exclusively on Canterbury cases. This briefcase is large enough to use as a trial briefcase. It is approximately 17 inches long by 11 inches high by 7 inches wide.


This case is structurally strong. It has no rips, tears or holes. However, it does have a considerable amount of scratching and there are marks on the case which appear to be stains. This is the reason this case is priced so low. Had this case been in better shape it would have been worth well over $100 instead of the lower price we are asking.

If you prefer a different style vintage bag, I have many in stock and you can see it at my shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/ProVintageGear
