This vintage suitcase is soooo amazing! Super cool marbled green faux leather exterior with goldtone hardware, and the rounded corners add an extra classy touch. The tag near the handle reads "Flight Weight Luggage, Wings, United Luggage, New York." There is a fading set of monogrammed initials M.L.W. beneath the tag. Nearly square in shape, measuring in at 21"w by 18 1/2"h by 8"d. And guess what? It has its original key too! Circa 1940s.

Open the suitcase to find vibrant and stunning HOT PINK lining in almost perfect condition. Three gathered storage pouches line the sides of the bottom of the case, along with two ribbon tie downs. Up above, you'll find a separator curtain hiding a wardrobe-style section including four original hangers. A metal bar folds down from the top and secures to two latches on the bottom half, to keep the suitcase propped open.

A few small scuffs on the exterior, as expected with age. There is one gash on a corner, as shown in the photos, that was patched with a bit of tape by the original owner. Inside, there is a bit of staining near the hinge of the case, as you can see. One of the four snaps on the separator curtain has ripped off. Overall excellent condition.
