If you're looking for individuality this is for you. This is a rugged vintage Gladstone style briefcase with a unique design of the sun rising behind the earth tooled into the side. This bag projects the experience and tenacity for those who carry it. Although it has scuffs and scratches from years of use it is fully functional and displays the character that most of us look for in a vintage leather case. There is no brand name on the bag.

This is a trial lawyer sized bag with plenty of room for books, files, laptops and any other tools you may need to present your case. If you are a professor or someone who needs to make the occasional presentation its a bag large enough to carry all the tools you need for such a presentation. This bag opens very wide at the top to allow easy access and egress. It has three compartments inside to keep you organized.

Dimensions:

Length: 18 inches
Height: 13.5 inches
Width: 7.5 inches

Condition:

Although this bag has plenty of wear it is in good vintage condition and has plenty of years of use left to give. The bag functions as intended. One of the two latches is nonfunctional. However, the remaining latch holds the bag closed tight. There is a push button latch that can be locked but the key is missing. However, it's in the unlocked position and functions as intended. There are plenty of scuffs and scratches that add character to the bag. There is also some discoloration that adds an experienced patina. Please see photos for the best depiction of the condition of this bag.

The Gladstone Style

The first Gladstone bag was designed and manufactured by J G Beard at his leather shop in the City of Westminster. Beard was an avid admirer of William Ewart Gladstone (1809–1898), the four-time Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and named it to memorialize his name.
