Vintage Wheary leather suitcase.

This beautiful, deep caramel-colored suitcase is "The Colonel" from the Wheary line of the 1940's. It is one of the largest hand-carry suitcases from that line. Made of heavy, top-grain leather with heavy stitching throughout. All four bottom corners are reinforced with a double layer of leather. Edges are leather-covered metal. Latches are unique and beautiful. Very art deco in appearance, embossed with the Wheary name and an image of a Griffin. When the thumb lever is pressed up, the latch swings inward, both operate very smoothly.

Inside there are 2 complete long-garment racks, each with original wooden hanger - pristine! Both racks remove completely from case, and then latch back in place. Upper section has tie bar and snap-in cover. Lower section has snap-in pocket/cover and 2 long ties.

Interior and exterior are both in excellent vintage condition. No odor or staining. Only minor, normal wear and aging. This is a gorgeous case that will give you many years of use or display.

Dimensions: 8" x 18.5" x 23.5"
Weight: 14lbs
