Vintage Suitcase Caramel Briefcase Portfolio 1950's Carry-on Salesman sample Artist travel case

This is one cool case!
A) It's a briefcase!
B) It's a retro carry-on suitcase!
C) It's a traveling artist case!
D) It's great storage!
E) It's all of the above!

The correct answer is "E"- all of the above!

Seriously, this is a multiple use case. Originally probably was a salesman's sample kit or portfolio, judging from the three divided compartments inside.
However, I don't think this salesman was too successful, because this case is in very good vintage condition.

The handle slides into and through the lid that opens to reveal a three-way divided inner compartment. Both the latches are in good working order, opening the case easily.

The dimensions are approximately:
19" x 13" x 8" deep
The inside compartment is basically one large compartment.
It has a small gusset on one side, big enough to hold a few file folders.

The material is, according to the guarantee label and tag:
"Sturdex- A Vinyl coated Material, Water repellant, wear resistant, washable, and resists scratches, scuffs and stains". ( see photo 5)

The case is indeed free of scratches, scuffs, and stains. The only thing I had found was some of the tan color has worn off on one edge. Very imperceptible.

It does include this little guarantee card, and the warranty card.
Also included is a pair of keys. (photo 3)

This fun, retro case would be great storage, good briefcase or a fun carry-on suitcase.
Your choice, but I'd grab it quick for your next adventure!

Note: I can ship to Canada, and have the shipping cost listed, but it is more than the suitcase!
