Fabulous cosmetics overnight case, made by Shortrip circa 1940s. The top grain cowhide whisky brown leather exterior is accented by a leather handle and brass hardware. Ultra chic. Measures approximately 14 1/2"l by 10 1/2"t by 7"d.

The case features two levels of storage. The top level opens with a single latch in the center and reveals an impressive storage compartment filled with 3 glass bottles for liquids (measure 4 1/8" tall), 3 glass jars (measure 1 3/8" tall), and 3 additional snapped compartments for jewelry and odds and ends. A large mirror sits up above.

The second level is secured closed with 2 latches and reveals and open compartment lined in chocolate brown moire acetate fabric. There is a long and deep elastic pocket on the top half of the clamshell, and a shallower long elastic pocket at the back wall of the bottom.

The case is in good vintage condition, though does have some signs of wear. The exterior leather shows some scuffs and blemishes as shown in the photos. The brass hardware has oxidized a bit, though all latches are fully functional. Inside, the mirror is in poor condition and has very little reflection left (this would be an easy replacement at a glass shop). The glass bottles and jars are free of any cracks or chips, though the gold-tone lids are not in stellar condition -- they are quite oxidized, and two of the bottles' lids are cracked (though still functional). The jars still have their contents -- powder in one, bobby pins in another, and safety and straight pins in the third. I've left these in found condition.

I usually have a couple pieces of fab vintage luggage in my shop at any given time. Check them out here:
