This is a fantastic item – it’s a vintage 1930s pet carrier. Although it looks a bit like leather, it's actually made of the same type of material that suitcases of this era (the non-leather type) were made of which is basically heavy duty cardboard with a decorative paper overlay. The overlay is a dark red and black hound’s-tooth pattern (slightly out of focus close up of this in the last photo). It is valise shaped and has vent holes on both ends (see 1st, 3rd and 4th photo) and a door on one end that clips shut with a brass clasp (see 3rd photo). It works quite well and is in good condition – it could easily be used today to carry a small cat or toy dog. It would look fantastic with some vintage travel stickers pasted on it! It would also make a great prop in a pet store.

Age: c1930s

DIMENSIONS: It measures 9” wide x 11” high x 16” long and will bear weight.

CONDITION: This is in good condition. There are a few minor cosmetic things – the overlay paper has a few places where it’s missing but there are NO breaks, no chips, no cracks. The handle is in good shape. The bottom is strong and in good condition and this could hold a small animal. Please click to enlarge photos to examine in detail.
