The Saddle Tan tone in the Samsonite Streamlite line is such a rich, warm shade...just gorgeous! The exterior has a somewhat marbled appearance, and features patina'ed brass-tone hardware, heavy-duty accent trim, and charming period travel stickers. Circa 1950s.

This case is a large size, measuring approximately 24"l by 20"h by 8"d. The cases in the Streamlite line have an interesting tapered shape, being slightly wider at the base than at the top. The exterior is in good vintage condition, with light age-expected scuffing and scratches, plus some popped stitches along the rubber bumpers.

The interior features classy gray/green fabric lining. There are two ribbon tie downs on one side of the case (one of which has come unstitched from the frame), and then a separator curtain down the center. The other side of the case features a wardrobe-style section with two hangers. The case opens a full 180 degrees and "lies flat for wrinkle-free packing," as touted in the advertisements of the day. The interior has light wear, but is clean with no major stains.

Luckily, I have a working key for this case!
