A lovely pair of Arflite suitcases with a two-tone yellow and brown design, circa 1940s. The luggage features yellow bodies with chocolate brown trim and a brown band that wraps around the top lip. Contrast stitching, brass hardware, and leather handles complete the ensemble.

The larger suitcase measures approximately 26 1/4"l by 16 1/2"h by 8 3/4"d. It has 3 brass latches for closure. It has some nicks, scuffs, scratches, and stains on the exterior, giving it a boatload of charm. The leather handle is significantly worn, though it has metal beneath it, making it still structurally sound. The interior is lined in brown silky acetate fabric, and features 2 long elastic pockets on the top half of the clamshell, and 3 elastic pockets plus 2 ribbon tie down on the bottom half. The lining has some wear, with some tears at the back hinge. Additional standard usage wear, including a sticker with the original owner's contact info, is present as well.

The smaller suitcase measures approximately 21 1/2"l by 14 1/4"h by 7"d. It nests within the larger case for easy storage and shipping. It is nearly a mirror image of the larger case, yet in slightly better condition. It has the same style interior, with similar signs of wear.

Unfortunately, I do not have a key for the pieces, but all hardware is functional. The latches on the larger case are a bit sticky, but work just fine with a little coercion.

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