Traveling in style was certainly a thing way back when -- and is certainly
appreciated, today. And this Vintage Plaid Suitcase though small in size is big
in mid-century fun! While it's perfect to do what it's meant to do -- hold your
small, on-the-go essentials -- this cool case also makes a fun, retro display
in a place of pride in your home. And what a fabulous conversation starter, too!
Measuring 15" in width, 12" in height, and 5 1/2" in depth, this small, soft
fabric suitcase features a predominately green and black plaid design with
thinner red and yellow stripe accents with black vinyl trim and a black plastic
handle. There are two black circle accents on the front face and three silver
circles on the top, with two additional silver circles holding the black
plastic handle in place.
The pattern is more wavy on one side (shown in photo 1) than the other (shown
in photo 4). The zipper goes around on three sides and there are plastic feet
with metal centers. The interior base is black vinyl covering a cardboard frame
with a label adhered, reading: Made in Hong Kong. Estimated to be from the
1960s, this small luggage is darling.
This travel case is in good vintage condition, used lovingly. There are worn
sections on the fabric corners (the most visible is shown in photo 6), the
zipper is wavy from much opening and closing over the years. The interior is
clean. You can see where the black vinyl is attached to the sides and a little
cardboard is peaking through on one side of the base (about 1/4" in width) from
top to bottom of the frame. There are a few discoloration spots on the interior
(photo 8). For more photos, please contact me.
What a great midcentury way to dress up a room and, of course, take anywhere.
