This wonderful vintage suitcase or overnight bag is leather and made by Dopp Bilt, Chicago, dating to about the 1950s. The case has a hinged top opening with two buckled straps and a latch on one side. It opens up to a compartment with a large zippered pocket, lined in plaid fabric. On the other side, there's a leather flap with two latches and zippers on each side, which open up all the way to a plaid-lined compartment. One side of the compartment has two small fold-down pockets with leather straps and snaps; on the other side is a place to hook hangers and a pull out fabric-covered board for keeping shirts unwrinkled. One hanger is also included.

This is a striking piece of luggage with nice rich leather and bold top stitching. The bottom has small metal feet and accordions out to accommodate more items; when it's fully expanded, more metal feet on the bottom protect it.

The suitcase has a metal label under the flap that says Dopp Bilt, Chicago, Illinois (the company that gave us Dopp kits). The handle is sturdy leather, and the hardware is brass or brass tone metal.

The train case is still sturdy, with some scuffs and marks on the leather and some wear on points where it bends, such as the leather straps and the very bottom middle points on the sides, where the suitcase expands. The latches have worn finish but work very well; there is no key. The two outside zippers still work, but the one on the left is not attached to the suitcase on the sides, and the one on the right has torn away from the suitcase part of the way. The inside zipper, snaps, and lining are all in very good condition

Size: 22 inches wide x about 7 inches deep (unexpanded) x 13 1/2 inches tall (55.9 x 17.8 x 34.3 cm)
